What is your role at Catholic Health?

Application Analyst supporting Invision, Soarian Financials, and the Intranet

How many times have you participated in the corporate challenge? 

A gazillion times (since 1999). I usually run, but this is the first time that I'll be walking.

What do you like about the Corporate Challenge? What motivates you to participate?

I used to use it for motivation to train and be fit. My motivation to participate is that it is for a good cause.

How do you prepare for the race?

Then: Run 6 miles a week from February until June.
Now: Eat pizza and wings and drink beer 6 times a week from February until June. Just kidding!

Do you have any advice for first-time walkers or runners? What should they expect (i.e. parking, the course, race etiquette, etc.)?
  • Runners to the front, walkers to the back!  
  • Parking: good luck!  
  • The course: pace yourself.  
  • Race etiquette: follow the rules.

Do you have any family or friends who are participating?

I have friends from Catholic Health who are running and walking. 

Do you have any words of encouragement for the runners and walkers in tomorrow’s race?

Be smart, stay hydrated, be safe. Remember, it's for a good cause.

Thanks Trong!
