Running Strong Since 1980
1) What do you do in your non-running life?.
I work as a Paramedic and my 3 boys keep me pretty busy with all their other activities.
2) How did you get involved in running?
I started running as a teenager while spending my summers on Cape Cod as a way to stay in shape in the off season of another sport. There was an avid runner who mentored me and got me running and had me enter my first race...The Falmouth Road Race, it is a 7 mile race. It has since become so popular that there is a lottery to enter!
3) What motivates you to run?
I run because..."Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them." -James Baldwin
I want to set a good example of health and good sportsmanship for my children.
4) What’s your favorite race distance?
My favorite distance is the half marathon, it is enough to challenge me and I still feel like a human the next day.
5) At a typical TCRR race, you can find me __
Checking you in before the race and somewhere behind David (the cute little boy in my picture) during the race.
