Brief Running History




Started “jogging” on my 30th birthday. I couldn’t make it around the block. Completed 43 Marathons and the Tallahassee Ultra 50K. 
I was the only American to compete in the 2005 Marabana, the Havana (Cuba) Marathon. Since I could not drink the local water, which was ladled from 55 gallon drums, I survived by eating the oranges provided at each aid table.
