Favorite Ruckus memory: My goal last year was to get out in front of the crowd and for a brief moment, I was in first place in my wave. I was king of the world for about 5 minutes until everyone caught me.
What keeps you Ruckus-ing in 2013? It's a good time and a fun alternative to just running. I enjoy the benefits of running, but sometimes not the act of running.
Register for our next Ruckus race—Kansas City on April 6th!
