Meet the "Sailboat" Mark Kenney

Mark Kenney

 1.) What goals do you have, (personal or running related), going into 2016?

Ans:  My goals for running in 2016 are to run shorter races at a faster pace and to explore new trails and meet new people.  Personally, I will continue to manage and operate my financial planning business, serve as a member of several Boards and do my best to balance work-family-faith and my charitable commitments.

2.) How long have you been running and how did you get into the sport?

Ans: I've been running collectively for 18 years.  I was introduced to running at the early age of 10 from a neighbor that lived just a few 100 yards from my house.  Long story short, I asked my parents if I could jog with him every morning before school and my love for running grew.  I took a hiatus from running between the ages of 17-32 to pursue other interests.  After having my second child, I got back into running for exercise and to get into shape.  

3.) Most recent race/achievement that you are proud of?

Ans:  My most recent achievement that I am most proud of is when I completed my first 100 miler at Brazos Bend 100 in 2014.

4.) What other outdoor pursuits or cross training endeavors do you participate in?

Ans:  I have set a goal this year moving forward to cross train more, using weight training, spinning, playing basketball, golfing, swimming and anything outdoors to keep me motivated and competitive.

5.) Other than running and being an amazing human being, whats your day job or what keeps you busy during the day to day?

Ans:  I am President of Kenney & Associates Financial Advisory Group, LLC.  Besides managing more than $70 million of clients' assets, I help individuals and small business owners with their insurance, investments and retirement planning needs.
