Mark Przybyla

CARA Race Committee

Mark Przybyla began running in 2006 in order to lose additional weight. Upon receiving encouragement from neighbors who ran, he entered his first race, a 10K, and became addicted to competition and good post-race parties!

In 2008 Mark joined CARA, Alpine Runners, and the Buehler YMCA Triathlon Club. With the help of all three, he completed his first triathlon along with his first marathon. In 2009 he joined Dick Pond/Fast Track Racing Team and has been inspired by the camaraderie, support, encouragement, and the opportunity to “pay it forward” as a member of Fast Track. He takes great pleasure and pride from watching runners of ALL abilities continue to join and enjoy their running club.

In 2011 Mark completed his sixth marathon, which also happened to be his strongest. He feels honored and humbled to continually get his butt kicked by the elites within his age group on the CARA Runners’ Choice Circuit!
