Shane Ruljancich

I am a seasoned runner who has competed in endurance events for a number of years. I have well over a hundred events under my belt and have completed track, cross country, road, and trail races from 3 kilometers to the marathon distance. I didn’t get serious about running until my late 20’s, but I believe this has worked to my advantage as it has kept me fresh and excited to keep striving for new challenges and better results. You can follow me on my Running Tough blog. I would like to share the knowledge I have gained with other runners to help them achieve their potential.
