I’ve tried running at various points in my life. Cross Country during high school and college, did the 10k thing in my 30s after I broke my ankle, just a hamster on the wheel…I never really got that “Runner’sHigh” that transcends the physical form.I found my calling in fall 2021. One of my best friends – Troy - had tragically succumbed to leukemia that was discovered during his training for a Rock N Roll Marathon. Me and all my pals agreed to go 26.2 together in tribute. I joined Runner’s High and nailed my first Houston in 2022, one of the more emotional moments in my life. Special thanks to my good friend Phi for being my intercessor.
Running has unlocked that inner beast for me. All the times that people told me I couldn’t cut it, shouldn’t risk it, or I’m too old … that’s my fuel. When I hit that last mile, I relish the chance to channel my inner “FU” and push myself harder than I ever have before. I know I’ve got Troy on my shoulders, God at my side, and the confidence that I’ve already won as a part of the Runner’s High team.
Excited to share the RHC journey with you this year. Thanks for letting me give back.
Boston (1): 3:20:29 (not bad for an old man)
Houston (2): 3:16:54 (ok, the calves gave out at mile 18, was pacing for 3:07, it happens ☹)
