I have been married for 43 years to Dawn who puts up with my craziness and we have two sons and daughters-in-law and 8 beautiful Grandchildren.
I started what I call really running in 2002 after many years of coaching recreation football and High School Football and track. I was very fortunate to be a part of a State Championship in Football and coach State Champions in track. I would run 6 to 9 miles a week before football and track practice till my son Jared got me a Peachtree Road Race number on July 4, 2002. That was the first time I ran over 3 miles at one time. It was also that year that a friend (Steve Seal) suggested we run a marathon, so we did. The Marine Corps in Washington D.C. After some 50 marathons it was suggested by another friend (Jen Hanekamp) that we run an Ultra. That is when I really found a love for trails and longer distance timed runs. I have been very blessed to be able to be injury free and have finished 5 one hundred mile runs and over 78 over marathon distance with no DNF’s and make lifelong friends that I never would have met except on the trails . Some of the best runs I have had the pleasure of doing are 15 Marathons with first time marathoners. It is so much fun seeing people accomplish a goal that one time they thought impossible. I am humbled to be a part of the Revolution Running Team I look for seeing y’all on runs and at races. When you run Revolution Running races you will have the opportunity to run with some of the best runners in the world (no kidding) and BELIEVE me we are going to have FUN!
