After training for and running in his first Spartan obstacle race back in 2012, Dallas Peck picked up the running bug and never looked back. A frequent gym visitor back home in CT, Peck has been enjoying pushing himself to his limits in training for this year's People's United Bank Vermont City Marathon, an aspect of running he enjoys the most.

From his home in CT, Peck enjoys running along the Housatonic River and seeing many familiar faces on his tree-lined runs every morning. Through his training, Dallas has lost over 75 pounds, and is always looking to take his running to the next level.

"I love running now, and the best feeling is when you see another runner on the road and they give you a high five or a head nod because you share the same love."
