About me: 
Simple guy who is husband to a great wife, father to 2 great young women, 22 and 19, volunteer paid-on-call firefighter and EMT-B, Jesus follower, that loves my family, my friends, and my community. I enjoy camping, fishing, boating, water-skiing, and hunting.
Why do I run: 
To stay in shape. Although... round is a shape, isn't it? I would like to run a sub-4 marathon and my pipe dream is to someday qualify for Boston.
Why I started running: 
To lose weight and get fit and to help kick the smokes. I was inspired by my oldest daughter, Chelsea, who started running XC in 7th grade and ran in the Michigan State Meet with her XC team her freshman year of high school. Now, our whole family runs.
