List one thing others may not know about you:
I started running to stay in shape for waterskiing about 10 years ago but never ran a organized race until the spring of 2008 (Jay Lyons 5K in Worcester MA.) One of the guys I ski with is an organizer for the race. I finished in 11th place and caught the racing bug.
