1:30 - Kyle Genteman
I began running at a relatively young age, but it really became my passion during my later college years with the club team at the University of Minnesota. I really enjoyed the camaraderie that exists between runners striving for similar goals. That, and some healthy competition against siblings drove me to dedicate more time to running.
I ran my first marathon at Grandma's Marathon in 2011, and fell in love with the distance. Since then, I've ran 6 more marathons, and just competed in my first Boston Marathon in April. Currently living in Minneapolis, I am a member of the Twin Cities Track Club, which not only includes a racing team, but also provides numerous volunteering opportunities to meet new people and network within the running community.
Outside of running, I spend my time golfing, hiking, or enjoying some local Minneapolis craft beers. Packers and Badgers fan, regardless of my current Minneapolis location.
I'm looking forward to pacing runners to a 1:30 half, and hearing everyone else's personal stories, passions, and goals.
