Although he has run since his teens he became a more serious runner around 2008 where he trained for his first half marathon and then full marathon. Jim has raced in all distances up to full marathons but his favorite distance is the half. Running is what he uses to manage stress and physical fitness. He loves sharing his passion for running and coaching others to meet their running goals running right along their side.
