Qiang started running in 2017 to try to keep his son company when he was a kid. Gradually he found running is fun and really enjoyed it. Then he tried to get more information about running and get some training. In 2019, he participated in the Howard County Striders Next Step training programs and greatly improved his speed and endurance. In November 2019, he finished his first marathon in Richmond with a finish time 3:02:14. So far, Qiang has finished four Marathons including the Boston Marathon and his personal best is 2:58:38. His goal is to see his running potential while keeping healthy, fitness level, and injury free. Qiang wishes to finish all six major marathons later.
