About Me

Hi and thanks so much for visiting Epic-Run.com!

Quickly, about me: I’m 29 years old and have been running for over 14 years now.  I live and work in Ann Arbor, Michigan.  I love training, racing, cross training, and just staying active.  I really enjoy racing middle distances (5k through the half marathon), but am currently training for my 5th marathon (hopefully my 2nd Boston qualifier).

A friend suggested I add some minor credentials: I’m a mid to low 17’s 5k’er (PR in the mid 16’s but not there currently…), sub-3 marathoner, and my continuous-days running streak (1 mile minimum) is currently over 12 years and rising. I’ve stayed pretty much injury-free, aside from a few minor hiccups along the way. Please let me know if you’re curious about anything else about me personally.

In short, I have decided to create this site because I love running–from the individual training, to the social aspect, to competitions (races!).  I am by no means an expert on anything, but I do feel very confident and comfortable with my own training and practices and I would like to share some of my accumulated “knowledge” and insight.

Some day, I hope to build a real community where us runners can share ideas and experiences through various topics that we enjoy talking about or want to know more about.

I encourage others to offer their own opinions and insight on the various topics and products that I discuss.  Although I offer completely honest reviews, please keep in mind they are all still just my opinions.  Just because something is working for me, it may not work for you (but I truly hope that it does!).

I want to help find the answers to your questions so that you too may have an EPIC RUN (many, many epic runs, actually!). Feel free to drop me a line at jeremy@epic-run.com if you’d like a question answered or a post written about a particular subject.

Please comment whenever you feel the need–other opinions are encouraged and very welcome.  Also let me know what I am lacking–I’m always up for ideas for new content, although I do have quite a bit I still plan on adding.

Happy trails (roads, paths, track lanes, sidewalks, etc!) to you!

-Jeremy

 

Special thanks to all friends and family who have supported (put up with?) my obsessive passion over the years.  Thanks JW for suggesting I start this site. Thanks SS for all your help with women’s products and reviews.
