Married to Elizabeth (she got me running in 2003). We have three boys, Lucas (12) , Sam (8) and Ollie (5).

Many years ago, I read that the AVERAGE male is capable of a 2:40 marathon.  I decided to test that theory.  I began running in 2003 with Top of Utah as my first marathon (4:24).  I need 3 more minutes.

Another wet lunch time run around Liberty Park, but better than ice and snow! Retiring some Nike shoes after this run because right foot and right knee are having some issues.

"Rediscovered" the blog this week. I've always enjoyed reading the race reports, but stopped logging miles several years ago. Time to start again!

Liberty Park run today.

This is my normal, weekday lunch time route. I usually do this run in less than 38 minutes and treat it as a recovery run from harder speed workouts.  Normally see familiar faces in the park, but with a storm moving in there were few runners out.
