Los Angeles / California / United States
Marathons Completed: 5
My name is Wing Chan. I work in the Finance department at the Skechers’ corporate office in Manhattan Beach.
I ran my first marathon in 2014 right here in Los Angeles, California. What started out as a challenge to myself has turned into a passion of mine. Being a finance professional that spend most of my days behind a computer, I was longing for an activity that would allow me to spend more time outdoors. Despite having only run a 10K race up to that point, I decided to train for my first full marathon. Through training with LA Road Runners and South Bay Runners club, I have developed many new friendships and have been inspired to be a better runner.
So far I have completed five marathons, with my most recent one in Chicago this past October. Things have come full circle as I’m once again training for the Skechers Performance Los Angeles Marathon. The L.A. marathon is a party to which runners and spectators are invited. I’m very excited to be part of this amazing party on March 17, 2017!
