Edward began running in 2013 after being pressured by his friends to join run club in Houston. Many laps around the Rice University loop later he ran his first Halloween 10k that was subsequently shortened to a 5k due to tornado warnings. He persisted running his first 10k and half marathon later that month in San Antonio. Edward likes to travel, using running as an excuse to visit as many cities as possible. He truly believes the best way to experience a city is on foot. And if there happens to be food and beer along the way, well, he thinks that’s not so bad either.
