I didn't try running until 2007 at age 42, and fell in love with it immediately. I was focused on mountaineering at the time, and it wasn't until November 2017 when I joined Club Northwest that I got serious about specifically training for foot races. I enjoy running and racing at just about any distance and type of event. I live with my wife and son in Bellevue.
