since nobody else is saying anything... [Nov. 26th, 2006|01:11 pm]


Okay, I guess I'll go first.  I'm Adam.  I'm 25, 26 next month, and I live just outside of Annapolis, Maryland.  I've been running for about as long as I can remember, so that's about 16 years.  I ran all through middle school, high school, and college.  Some of my accomplishments as a runner:

4:18 1500 (4:31 mile, converted)
9:42 2-mile
15:10 5,000m (track)
31:35 10,000m
57:10 10 mile
1:16:26 half-marathon
2:47:23 marathon

I've also been a high school track coach, but that was back in my hometown in Michigan.  My girls' 4x800 relay team won the state championship this past june in 9:31.24.

Pre's always been a motivation to me because he trains the way most runners wish they could train--without fear.  He really embodies what hard work, talent, and complete lack of surrender can do.  More than that, his coach, Bill Bowerman, is the man I model myself after as a coach and a mentor.  When I return to coaching (after a year in the AmeriCorps--the domestic Peace Corps, for anybody who isn't familiar with it), I intend to model myself even more after Bowerman and after Pre, both as a coach/mentor and as an athlete.

Awesome times
If you know anyone else that would be interested in this community, feel free to spread the word ;)

I still run the 4 x 800, but I forget what our group time is...I'll have to figure that one out this year;)
