I have been married for 43 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 8 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 over 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.
This is the third year I'll be doing the Marine Corps Marathon and that gives 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.
