THE STORY:

I never ran a single race until 1994. On St. Patricks Day in Manitou Springs Co. at the age of 28 I ran my first 5k…not because I wanted to run, but because I thought it would be a great way to meet girls. Since that time, I have ran nearly 100 Marathons. I completed the 24 Hour Run around Grays Lake. In 2009 I became the 2nd person to Run across my home state of Iowa and this past summer became the first person to ever run around Lake Michigan. 1037 Miles in forty days, averaging a marathon a day. The Iowa and Lake Michigan run were done to raise money and awareness for all those in the fight against Cancer.

It was during the 2009 run across Iowa that the Idea for the Million Dollar Marathon popped into my head. (there’s ALOT of time to think while you run across a state). Cancer Fighters and their families have shown me the true meaning of life, the value of those people closest to us and that each moment is to be cherished. This run is for all of us…all of us that have been touched by Cancer.
