Chris Shelton – March Runner of the Month

1. What inspires you to run?
Family, friends, the next race…and the race after that. The group runs and also the alone time. Exploring new routes, and grabbing the Local Legend in Strava on the routine ones. Yearly mileage, 2023 I’m shooting for 1500!

2. When did you start running?
I started running January 3, 2018, 6:18 pm. Earlier that day a great friend said I was running a 5k with him… so training had to begin. I ran a 1.3 mile interval run!

3. Favorite post-race meal?
I like them all! Breakfast, burgers, beer they’re all great. Not necessarily post-race, but lately on long runs, I have found myself thinking about the bacon breakfast pizza at Market Street.

4. Favorite race.
As of now my favorite race is the Houston Marathon. It was my first…and currently, my only one. This could soon change to Cowtown!

5. Best advice to new runners.
Keep it fun… running with a group helps 😉

6. One fun fact about you…
In 2007 I was the on camera “Talent” for a high-tech communication tool known as The Monkey Decider. The video is available on YouTube.
