My running career started when…

I ran cross-country in Omaha, NE as a sophomore in high school

I joined Atlanta Track Club because…

I didn’t get into the AJC Peachtree Road Race one year

My most memorable running experience was...

Walt Disney World Marathon in 2014 with my wife.

My craziest running story/moment was...

In 1990 While in the US Navy, my ship entered a team in the the Mt. Rainer to the Pacific relay. I fell in a hole in the middle of the night and limped into the exchange point covered in blood, thankfully nothing broken. Medic stitched me up and I somehow ran my third leg so no one had to run extra.

The one thing I want everyone to know about Atlanta Track Club...

The more you do with Atlanta Track Club, the more you will love it.

I run (to/for/because)…

For lots of reasons: Fitness, a way to clear my head when I run alone, a way to spend time with family and friends, because I’m competitive, because I don’t feel good when I don’t run
