From his website:
The 2016 U.S. Marathon Trials Project has 3 goalsOne of the main reasons I joined was to be part of something bigger than just me trying to qualify for the Olympic Marathon Trials. I found the stories of other Trials qualifiers very inspiring as they came out in the media last year. I felt like I was connected to this larger group of athletes. I can only imagine how exciting it will be to be part of a project dedicated to getting as many runners to the Trials for 2016 as possible.
1. Help as many people as possible qualify for the 2016 U.S. Olympic Marathon Trials
2. Help as many people as possible obtain the A Standard for the trials
3. Help as many people as possible finish at or near the top of the field in the trials race
With 2:43 as the new B standard, I have my work cut out for me, but I do have a few years to work at this. I am excited to get back to training again and can't wait to share my journey with all of you!
