I'm a life-long athlete who, in my 40s, is only getting faster! When my wife was diagnosed with breast cancer, she made me promise to get in the best shape of my life. I told her that was pretty much impossible since I grew up playing water polo. After promising to do an Ironman (Lake Placid), then she says that I should qualify for Boston.... oh boy. So, I did! Through discovering more about my passion for running, swimming and overall fitness, I'm most encouraged when I get to pass along fitness wisdom to younger generations and then watch them flourish. I've competed in ultra-distance running, Ironman races and relay portions of both. I prefer training and racing with friends as the time goes by so fast and effortlessly. When racing opens back up, I look forward to competing in longer ultra distance runs and swimrun. I hope to have a chance to represent BlueSeventy!
