Long-Term Running Goals:

My main goal is just to stay healthy.  I was injured every year in my college career except for one.  I would like to reverse that trend and always stay injury-free.


I am a family man.  I am married to my beautiful wife Amy (who also ran at Weber and is quite the runner).  We have two beautiful daughters named Evelyn (3 years old) and Hannah (1 year old).

Well I figured it's been a long time since I put an update on the blog. As many know I had surgery about 9.5 weeks ago, an IT Band Release. Well after the surgery the wound/incision kept filling up with fluid that appeared to be joint fluid. After getting it drained three times, it was concluded that I had joint fluid leaking from my knee capsule.

So I had to go back in for surgery again 1.5 weeks ago to stop that leak. Recovery so far has been a bit rougher this time around, but the range of motion is starting to come around. Matt has been incredible through all this as both a doctor and a supporting friend and I sure appreciate all he's done for me. Amy has also been a huge support and helps me keep from being down or frustrated.

I look forward to running again soon (4-6 weeks), as it feels like it's been forever. So that's the status update for now; wish me luck. And good luck to all running STG this weekend. I sure wish I could join y'all, but I am excited to see how it all shakes out down there!
