Welcome to my world. I run, I help run and maintain a household and I try to be a good husband to my beloved wife.

I run because I have a passion for it, unearthed after I dropped some 120 pounds between March 2006 and October 2007. I've run nearly every race distance: one 5K, a handful of 10Ks, a 15K, a half-marathon and the culmination of my running life, a marathon.

Still, running is my passion but being an honest, firm but loving father to my two young daughters and a worthy husband to my wife of 10-plus years is what drives me to do the things I do each and every day. That and trying to keep the weight off while running as much as my legs can handle.
