Why I started running: 
I ran competitively in High School and College, but by my senior year I had drifted away from the sport. Fast forward 5 years… My wife and her family signed up for “Race for the Cure” 5K in memory of her Aunt Pam. I signed up for the race and have kept running ever since. I had forgotten how much fun and challenging running could be. Running is hard and there is suffering when you test your limits; as with most personal challenges. At the end of the day my hope is to have an experience that will make me a stronger person and maybe a story to share and inspire others. In 2010 I became a member of a USATF development team Iowa Runablaze. Then in 2012 I was accepted to the Hurricane Team as an athlete ambassador for Saucony.
