People I've met running.....

Over the last almost four years of running, I've meet a couple people that are well known in the running industry:

Marshall Ulrich - Ultrarunner supreme
The legendary Frank Shorter
The Olympian and NYC marathon winner Meb Keflezighi
Of course to meet these famous runners was amazing and truly an honor.

However, I've also met some fantastic people from the area including some fantastic race directors that have given us local runners opportunities to run in races.  Without local people like these, we would not have races.  They work tirelessly to put on great races for our area.  I'm sure you too have met people like this in your part of the country as well.
Alan - Kona Race Director - ShamRocknRoll, Kona, Wicked Halloween, Hot Chocolate Run
Emily - Rock CF Race Director
Joe - Back to the Beach Race Director
Karl - Mountain Man Race Director
But most important of all I've met many people, both local and from around the country, that are just regular runners like myself.  We enjoy getting out and meeting other runners so we can talk about running, learn about running and socialize about running.  Haha!

I've met these people through the blog or through their blogs, at races, through Facebook and Twitter.  There are many others too but I need pictures of them!  haha!  It's nice to have a camera with you at all times.  

Of course, running is much more than just running.  It's a community. It's the people we interact with that makes the running community what it is and why I continue to run.  Yes, I do it for myself but there's so much more to it than that.

Have a great day and....Keep Running!!!!


  1. Nicely put! Running is such a great community to be a part of! So glad I caught the "bug" last year :)

  2. It's definitely cool how many people you meet through fitness in general. I've met some of my very best friends through triathlon. When you share something in common it's so much easier to just mesh!

  3. I like it had you keep a record, if you ever in Cape Town you got to add me to that list of people....

  4. I'm happy to have met a lot of good people through blogs, twitter, etc. too! Running community is great.
