Why I run

It gives me time to think and I feel physically and mentally rejuvenated

Brief Running History

Started “jogging” on my 24th birthday. I couldn’t make it around the block. Completed 43 Marathons and the Tallahassee Ultra 50K. I was the only American to compete in the 2005 Marabana, the Havana (Cuba) Marathon. Since I could not drink the local water, which was ladled from 55 gallon drums, I survived by eating the oranges provided at each aid table.

Inspirational Quote

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood…” Theodore Roosevelt.
