JEFF CREIGHTON

Hometown: Palos Verdes, California

Background: Got up one morning at 10 AM fat and happy and walked out the front door of our Leucadia rental and saw a bunch of fit, skinny people running by. Went back into my house and told my wife I needed to get in shape.  Bought a two-person running stroller and began my life of running with two kids screaming “Faster daddy Faster!” Entered my first race, the La Jolla half, and got my rear end whipped.  I was hooked.

Mile: No idea

10K: 35:30*(2012)

The Fun Questions: 

Favorite Race: Catalina Marathon

Favorite Workout: Taper week

Words to Live By: "In running, you are who you are"   (Me)

Why I Choose to Run for PRT: I was asked…and that was a real honor.  I also love being a part of a team where people call you by your last name.  It’s been 30 years since I’ve had that pleasure.

What I Like to Do Besides Running: Rest, work, garden, goof around with my wife and three grown kids.  I currently run a very small internet start-up in Encinitas.  If you ever see an old guy running with a Dalmatian early in the morning in Olivenhain, honk…or join me. I’m always looking for company.
