About Chuck: I’ve lived in Alexandria since 1998. I’ve run most of my life. I ran cross country in high school and college. Between my late 20s and early 30s, I had a job that was time consuming and I got away from running and exercise in general. With my weight creeping up, in 2009 I decided I needed to get back into shape and embrace a healthier lifestyle. In the last six years I’ve run five half marathons and nine 10 mile races. Having the structure of a running club with set runs helps me to stay fit and active.
Favorite Race Experience: Breaking 65 minutes for the first time in a ten mile race (2014 Cherry Blossom 10 Mile Run).
Favorite Race Medal: The medal I got from the Toronto GoodLife Half Marathon in 2012. With a red maple leaf on front, it’s the most unique (and largest) medal I have.
Unaccomplished Race Goal: Qualifying for Boston.
