I'm an enthusiastic runner from the metro Detroit area. I found a love for running when I was young. Then I lost touch with it while in college, but it has since returned with a mission.
Life At Home
I'm married to my lovely wife, Lauren, who hates running (she'd much rather swim or do yoga in a 110 degree room). Together we have a son, Jack, and a dog, Buddy. I love to take Jack and Buddy on runs, but never at the same time.
Why I Started Running
I've been running since grade school, mostly because others said I was good at it. I decided to join track, which led me to join cross country in high school. By my school's standards, I was good; varsity level as a freshman. Then after my first invitational, I realized we were a long ways from the top. I don't remember much more about then. I think my 5K PR was about 19:10.
Why I Run, Today
Once family life started to kick in, my weight started to go up as well. I have many reasons for running:
- to lose weight
- to be healthy for my family
- for that runner's high
- to push my boundries
- because I sit on my ass a lot as an engineer
Anyways, thats me. A father/husband/dog lover/engineer who likes to run. Thanks for reading this far, I know I wouldn't of.
