Who am I: I am the tortoise. Slow and old. Married to my beautiful wife, Cathy, who is incredibly patient and supportive of this passion of mine. I am a father with three kids and one grandchild, so far. As someone who got into running later in life, my passion for running began with struggling to run one mile to having completed multiple marathons, 50Ks, 50Ms and a hundo. 

What I love about running: It allows me to decompress and get out of my head.

What I hate about running: Every run is not a great run. There are ups and downs. Some runs feel good and some feel bad. And you don’t always know when you head out the door.

Bucket List Race: Western States Endurance Run

Why Ultras? Because at one point I never thought I could.
