What a fun and inspiring episode! Anita and Andy Harless take us on their journey from getting into running to recently overcoming Cancer. You just can’t help to be positive and motivated when you are around this couple.
It’s a huge accomplishment to participate in an Ironman. Now multiply that by nine, throw in several international events and you can see why we are super excited to have Brad Brown join the Complete Runner family!
Brad was involved in running most of his life until he decided in 2007 it was time to spice things up. Even though he hadn’t ridden a bike since he was a kid and wasn’t a great swimmer he joined the FAST triathlon club and challenged himself to a local triathlon.
That was all he needed to get hooked.
In 2010 Brad stepped up his game to participate in his first Ironman Triathlon in Madison, Wisconsin. Since then he has participated in a total of 9 Ironman Triathlons, including international events in locations like South Africa, Wales, England, and Germany.
Brad has also participated in many local Michigan events, including the Bayshore Marathon in Traverse City as well as the Crim Festival of Races in Flint.
Brad’s future plans include participating in more endurance events, even getting into the ultra marathon scene.
After traveling so much for work over the last decade, including living in the UK for three years, Brad is excited to settle down and turn his long-time hobby into a career by joining the Complete Runner Family as partner with Curtis Thompson. He is looking forward to integrating into the Flint running community where he can use his extensive triathlon and running experiences to help local athletes accomplish their goals.
