We are grateful to each of the participants, partners, team members, volunteers and community members who come together to make our events at Level 32 Racing a success. One foot in front of the other folks!
Producing the portfolio of events that are listed on this site represents the next level of everything I'm involved with in the running community since 2013. The word "LEVEL" is also a palindrome-- it reads the same forward and backward! Not unlike the beauty of being able to run and walk road and trail courses both ways and cover the same distance.
The number 32 was my number as a former athlete in multiple sports, most notably football, and has had a constant presence in my life. In addition, the number 32 is made up to the vibrations and energies of the number 3 and the number 2. The number 3 brings the attributes of self-expression and communication, optimism, creativity, expansion, sociability and compassion for others. The number 2 carries the qualities of balance and harmony, selflessness and service to others, diplomacy, mediation and co-operation, faith and trust and relates to your soul mission and life purpose. These energies and attributes combine to bring us the number 32 which represents society, communication, partnerships, duality and balance. In other words, "Keeping it on the Level".
Stay level headed and keep running!
