About the Authors

I am what is termed an "Adult Onset Athlete", and have been running for both fitness, and to race for about 15 years now. I started running on a regular basis when I was in my mid 30's, and have worked my way up to the current situation of racing about once a month. I like to do half marathons, full marathons, and off road trail races. My current goal is to run a half marathon at my Boston qualifying pace of 8:11 (1:47:30), and then perhaps next crack 4 hours in the marathon. After that, faster, further and beyond!

My Wife Dawn race walks at many of the secondary events we attend, blasting past many runners with her fast pace. We both look forward to a long future in racing setting new Personal Records and having fun while staying physically fit.
