Chris McClung    I coach:  The  Morning Show  on Wednesdays @ 5:30 AM   Background:  I've been running & competing for 16 years and I've met some of my best friends on the roads. I run to test my limits, to see what I can accomplish if I push beyond where I think I can go.   Years Coaching & Philosophy:  10 yrs; The Morning Show is all about commitment, consistency, and community. We run early. We run often. We do it together.   Best advice for new Rogues:  Take the first step and then commit to listening to your coach. They will not give you something you can't handle.   Most memorable run/race:  Boston Marathon 2014 - After the bombing. The energy and passion of the crowd was overwhelming. I've never cried on a run but had tears welling up as I ran down the finishing straight on the same streets that had been devastated the year before.   Interesting fact:  I can stick an American quarter in my nose. Don't believe me? Give me a quarter, and I'll show you!

Sometimes taking the first step out the door is tthe toughest, but it helps if you plan to meet with people to keep you accountable.   Most memorable run/race:  NYC Marathon 2016. It was my first marathon & I had never been apart of anything like as a fan or competitor, the atmosphere was incredible.   Interesting fact : I work for a fantasy sports company but have not managed to win a league since being hired.
