B. S. in Business Management from Indiana University; Minor in Finance, Minor in Marketing MBA in Business Management from Indiana University Began running marathons in 2001 and haven't looked back since...... I am recently engaged to Jessica. I am learning to be a father to her 8 year old daughter Cadence. Starting a new family with roles and responsibilities seems harder than any physical undertaking I have tried, but there is nothing more fulfilling either.
My motivation is my family. Nothing makes me happier than to be able to give my family something or someone to be proud of.
My goals include: completing 100 miler, completing 150 miler, completing 1st triathlon (any distance), completing an ironman......
None at the moment.

My defining moment has to be the fact that when I decided to get into endurance sports, I jumped right in with a marathon and ran my PR on the first try. I think I showed my willingness to listen and learn from anyone and everyone on that first race. I've been stubborn ever since to do it my way.......
