I grew up in Bloomington, IN and was talked into running cross country in high school by my best friend. I was naturally decent at running, but nothing super special. In college, I ran just so I didn’t get fat but fell back in love with it after college.
Beyond running, I love being organized, reading, anything comedy, surrounding myself with inspiring, giving people and always working to overcome my fears.
I’m an RRCA Certified Running Coach.
Favorite thing to do: Anything that makes me laugh. I love stand up comedy.
Favorite Beverage: Vodka, Grapefruit, Sprite or a yummy sour beer. Although this changes a couple times a year.
Best Race: Shamrock Marathon
Why do you run: To keep my sanity and test my abilities

“Our joy does not have to be based on our circumstances”
Born and raised in Crown Point, IN. Grew up playing sports…mostly basketball and baseball but nothing of the endurance nature. Basketball is still my true love. Marshall doesn’t know it yet but I plan on living out my basketball dreams through him (kidding…kind of.)
Went to IU to study Finance, got fat, and found a wife. Lindsey may say we only were hanging out for a summer “fling” but I always had other intentions.
Started running to lose weight right around the time I met Lindsey and you can say it has kind of snowballed from there.
I love the Chicago Bears, Michigan Football, and Indiana basketball…so try and figure that one out. Avid fan of Seinfeld and Pearl Jam.
Favorite thing to do: Hang out with Marshall
Favorite Beer: The hoppier the better
Best Race: Ironman Wisconsin for race execution and Birmingham Marathon for results
Why do you run: Few things in life can come down to just one’s ability and belief in self like running and I really enjoy seeing how far I can push that. Currently still haven’t found the ceiling.
