I have been married for 41 years to my wife Irene. We live in St. Louis, Missouri. We have one daughter and three grandchildren who all live in Gaithersburg, Maryland. I am a CPA by profession and one of the things I do to maintain my sanity is run. I get up every morning and before I eat breakfast or do anything else, I put on my running gear (which varies with the weather) and hit the road. I am currently on a consecutive day running streak of six years. Now this may seem like an obsession, but we all have them...running is just something I like to do. During this streak, I have completed 14 marathons. I am not as fast as I was when I was younger, but with age we enjoy that wonderful invention—the age group—so occasionally I get an award even though a lot of younger people zip by me on the course.

I have never run the Marine Corps Marathon, but I have heard the firsthand experiences from both Marines and civilians who have run it. Also, my daughter encouraged me to enroll. Well, I did not get picked in the lottery, but that gave me the fantastic opportunity to support the Marine Parents organization (by joining TMP). I cannot think of a better reason to run this great race. I will be looking forward to raising money for Marine Parents and running the Marine Corps Marathon this October.
