Friends and Family!
Thank you for your support! The 2017 NYC Marathon will be my 15th full marathon.
It's an honor to mark my 15th race with the New York Marathon. The NYC Marathon has been on my bucket list for several years and I'm pumped to do it in support of a charity so near and dear to Allie.

Why I Run
Running has been a significant part of my life since my 1st half marathon in Austin in 2012. For me, running is not only a way to stay active but also a way to destress and clear my head. Whether its a problem I'm trying to solve for work or just stressed about the daily things in life, running has been my outlet. For anyone with a spouse/partner who runs marathons, they know the training impacts everyone. Allie has been a tremendous supporter of my training plans and early morning runs over the years and I'm thrilled to support her as I complete my 15th marathon.
