Between teaching, pursuing a Ph.D. and devoting time to family and friends, Anderson University English Professor Jason Parks still manages to train for marathons and run up to 130 miles a week. “Running gives me a lot of energy,” said Parks. “I know some people might think that running 15 miles a day might be tiring, but I always feel more relaxed and focused when I've had a good run.” Each week, Parks usually runs 10-12 miles every morning and shorter runs in the afternoons.
