There’s a lot of running and eating that goes on here, but I can’t do it alone. I have an amazing support crew that motivates me, whether it’s to finish a race or finish a meal. I want to take some time to recognize my all-stars, even if one of them has four legs and no arms.

Ev and I met in 10th grade English and became friends right away. Without getting into too many details, we dated throughout college and got married in December 2010 (I’m very convincing). She has supported me the entire time that I’ve been running, even getting me my very first Garmin watch. It’s highly unlikely I’d where I am now without her support. Now I support her with her newest endeavor at b.o.m bakery. Check it out. Thank me later.

And stay out of her way if she sees a squirrel:
