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.

Currently coming back from a long 9-month injury lay-off. I was able to start back up running again in December and have been building my fitness back ever since.


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 (4 years old) and Hannah (2 year old) and we'll have a third daughter in March (or late Feb).
