MEMBER OF THE MONTH – NOVEMBER 2017
(Ron with his daughter, Claire, at the Half Moon Bay Pumpkin Run)
How did you hear about Pacifica Runners?
How long have you been a runner?
I ran on the cross-country team in high school (I wasn't very good) and recreationally in college, but then I took about 10 years off. I got back into running in June 2004 and have been running ever since.
How did you get into running?
I was sedentary and I knew I needed exercise, and running was very efficient in terms of time. But then I quickly came to love the sport and the community and the physical improvements in myself.
Do you have a favorite race(s)?
That's a tough one! I've run 28 road marathons and maybe 20 ultramarathons. Running 69 miles across England in Rat Race - The Wall, was a very positive and special experience. The Boston Marathon, which I've done 6 times, is very special, too.
What are your favorite running trails/routes?
I've probably run a few thousand miles on Montara Mountain.
What are your future running goals?
I have a lot of room for improvement in the hundred mile distance, but more short term, I have to get over a case of plantar fasciitis, sadly..
The people! I've gotten to meet Fran and Ria a bunch of times, and I've known Mor for years from the Coastside Running Club. The races you put on are great, and that's my favorite Pacifica Runners activity for me and my 15 year old daughter.
Any other cool info about yourself?
I ran the Las Vegas Marathon in just under 3 hours, dressed as Elvis. I keep a blog with all my race reports. http://ronlittle.blogspot.com/
