Rodney's running career:

I have been running for 14 years, in which I have completed 14 half marathons. 13 of them have been the News and Sentinel Half Marathon and one in Columbus. I set my personal record of 1:56 in the Parkersburg Half.

Rodney's Motivation:

The sense of accomplishment and keeping the string of consecutive years going, the excitement of race day and the friendliness of the other racers.

Advice from Rodney:

Start the race slow and don't get caught up in the racing pace. It will help you in the second six miles. Enjoy the atmosphere and make some friends along the race.
