Bob With his niece after her first 5k.

About Bob:  Relatively new to running, Bob has been retired from the Department of Defense for longer than he wants to remember.   Out of shape nearly to the point of falling apart, he started walking somewhere around 2008 and working out in 2010.  35 pounds or so lighter Bob started running in 2012 with a 5k on the coldest day of the year.  Undeterred, he continued to run.  Running back with the stragglers, he has completed 6 half marathons, as many 10 milers, and a whole lot of 5Ks and 10Ks.  He was steadily if not quickly improving, but injuries over the last few years have slowed his progress.

Favorite race experience:  Completing the Navy/Air Force Half Marathon in 2013.

Favorite Race Medal:  The picture (above) with my niece after she completed her first 5k.

Unaccomplished race goal:  Sub-40 minute 5k.
