I am the proud father of three wonderful children, the oldest of which is my Marine. My Marine graduated from boot camp at MCRD San Diego in December of 2016. He is a great source of love, inspiration and motivation to my wife, his two younger siblings, and myself.
Our family has always been an active bunch, participating in all sorts of of team and individual sports, but never running. Earlier this year, my wife got the crazy idea to run the Marine Corps Marathon. I kind of laughed off the idea of joining her but seeing her work so hard to prepare and make her dream become a reality has inspired me to join her in running this October. I think of myself as an athlete but certainly never an endurance athlete. I always thought they were a little crazy, but now that I have begun training as well I enjoy the time spent with my wife training and pushing to become better and better each day.
