2017 LA Marathon Race Report
"It was just the little motivation I needed to get me to that next stop light, to that next water station, to that next marker I told myself"
Los Angeles Marathon Recap
"The first couple miles are pretty downhill out of Dodger Stadium. This can be nice because it helps you get moving while you are still waking up, but it can be dangerous because you start out much faster than you should."
