Achilles International Queens Chapter
Team Member: John Pierre
EVENT DATE Jul 01, 2018
My name is John Pierre AKA The Ultimate Running Machine! I had a walking group through my day Program and ICD (International Center For The Disabled) then during our walks the Walk Therapist asked how do I feel about running so I said I don't know so I tried running and liked it so she told me about Achilles so January 24, 2016 on a Cold Tuesday night I showed up for An Achilles Workout for the First time and supposed to run 4 Miles but got lost in Central Park and ran 6 Miles instead!
On March 25,2012 , I had my First race race called Columbia University Charity 5K in Riverside Park where I was nicknamed The Running Machine and live up to it ever since! In May 2012 I had my first Half Marathon at Brooklyn Half Marathon and ran 26.2 Miles on NYC Marathon Day in 2012 all in Central Park when it was Cancelled due to Hurricane Sandy! Training for Marathon 2013 , I was Sidelined for NYC Marathon due to injury from Neck down to Spine down to Hip on right side so I Coached my then Marathon Team and Returned for NYC Half 2014 wearing my Signature The Ultimate Running Machine Cape for The very first Time and will be doing my 6th Marathon Since Injury on November 5,2017!
I am now upgrading for my first ever Ultra 60K (37.2 Miles) all in Central Park just 2 weeks after the NYC Marathon! I am helping out my hometown chapter of Achilles here in Queens by fundriaising and would love to have your Support! Thank you so much!
JP aka Ultimate Running Machine!
