2017 - The Warm Up Is Over
Dropping my body weight down from 315lbs to 195lbs in 6 months to do my first marathon in 2011, I was officially hooked. I now train at 6'4" and between 200lbs - 245lbs doing marathons, ultramarathons and Ironman triathlons. I'll do back to back races some weekends, sometimes even in the same day in different cities. During the winter months I in Scottsdale, Arizona where the weather is absolutely spectacular. I travel most weekends to pick up a race or 2 but love coming back home. I frequent Colorado to train at altitude because I love the mountains and the people.

They Laughed...
They laughed at me when I said I wanted to start running at 315lbs...
They laughed when I said I would drop the weight to do it...
They told me after the cancer and arthritis and tearing the ligament completely off my ankle that I would never run distances over 5 miles...
They laughed when I said how inspired I was by ultrarunning...
They laughed when I said I would do a marathon...
They will laugh at you...

If I cannot find a way... I will make a way!
