My running career Started:
- Had a very high competitive nature my whole life. Running passionately consumed my life  during my 21 years in the U.S. Navy. Stationed with the Marines we ran a lot, but while stationed with the Navy Seals I learned a whole different meaning for very long, but fun beach runs!!

My favorite race distance:
- Any distance that allows my body & mind to push it's limits!!!

My most memorable running accomplishment:
- Love Them all and definitely too many to nail down just one. Shamrock weekend in VA. Beach is always high up on the list!! My hats off to J&A Racing for being such a top rate organizer!!

My Favorite Running Event (non race):
- Run for the fallen heroes (236 miles in four days, honoring over 300 fallen heroes)..
