Guest Bio:

Uche Anusionw who lives in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, is a corporate banker, and a real estate investor. He has been an avid runner for over 20 years. In that time, he has run several marathons, half marathons, ten milers, 10ks, and 5ks. He was the leader of Team United Nations, my first  run club, and is now a co-leader for the Winfield track club in Philadelphia. In both instances, he marshaled and continues to marshal runners of all abilities to get out of bed, at ungodly hours in the morning. He is the ultimate run ambassador, and if it wasn’t for him I may never have become addicted to running.
