I started running in 1987 while serving in the Danish army, mostly forest orienteering in Denmark and Scandinavia and a select few road half marathons. After relocating to Houston in 2009 I moved to road racing after literally running into a runner group in Terry Hershey Park and caught the marathon bug. First full marathon was CHM 2014 and still working on adding more to that list. Now at 7 marathons and 39 HM’s. Running the Texas Independence Relay has also been an annual highlight together with some trail running sprinkled in here and there. I believe that running is about maintaining good health and creating good stories to share afterwards and, most importantly, having fun while doing all of it together with people that we appreciate. KARC brings out those qualities and I hope to represent that.
