I am 41. Been with 582 over a year now. I transferred over from Laborers 300. I started running 2.5 years ago. To date I have done several half marathons, 8 full marathons, (2) 50k races and 1 50 mile race. More recently, this Feb I travelled to Sri Lanka to run a 6 day 150 mile race through the jungle.
Finally, last weekend I ran my 1st 100 mile race in the desert outside of Scottsdale Az. I completed 100 miles in 26 hours and 21 minutes. I took short breaks but I did not sleep.
I am on a running team for a non-profit called Runwell which raises money and awareness to help put drug addicts into rehab. I have been fortunate enough to have been with Xcel mechanical for all of my apprenticeship. I obviously work 40 hours and participate in our school.
Thanks for your interest.
I’m proud to be a UA Member in good standing.
