I am U.S. Air Force Veteran and an engineer who loves running. I was born in North Africa in El Batan village where I run to and from school and loved it. There were no school buses of course:) I love long distance running - it is my meditation time. I run in any kind of weather early in the morning around 4:30AM then go to work. My favorite place to run is lake Hefner. I run around the lake plus stars and stripes to get my pre-work 10.1 mile run. This keeps me happy and energetic all day:) Keep running, It is only good for you!. At 56, I still have my perfect teenage joints. I am a member of the Landrunners and the president of the Boeing Employees' Adventure running club. I love life and my beatiful U.S.A.
