Super Star In Runners World

This is Doug and I back in 2001! I was chosen as the January Superstar for Runners World Magazine because of my year round running, even in -38 degrees. I was preparing for my first marathon in St. George when they took the picture in October of 2000. I remember during that race questioning myself "Why am I doing this?". I went on to run 6 more marathons and during each one after the 17 mile mark this same question would haunt me till the 25th mile. It is amazing what running has done for me and the experiences that I have had because of my love to run! I am grateful for this body that has responded to my desire to run.
