Why RunnX

I discovered my devotion for running at an early age. I started running 5k's at age 10, advanced to half marathons and a marathon by early adulthood. My commitment to my two passions of running and technology led to me being known as RunnX. Today the RunnX moniker represents the discipline, determination, and perseverance that has made me successful as both a distance runner and technologist. These are the attributes embodied in my business hence RunnX has become my trademark.

The way I measure my life is 'Am I better than I was last year?'
