“My favorite part about the Asheville Marathon was the course; It was tough, but beautiful.”

Tell us a little about your running journey: “After a knee injury where I was told I would never run again, I took up cycling as a way to stay in shape. Several years later I decided to try a 5k on a whim and, after a successful run, slowly built my mileage and have never looked back. Since then, I’ve run over a dozen half marathons and two marathons.”
What was your favorite part of the Asheville Marathon, Craig? “My favorite part about the Asheville Marathon was the course; It was tough, but beautiful. The long range view of the house on the west side of the estate about mile 14 or 15 was incredible!”
