Stuff About Me:

A little over 2 years ago I suffered a right-sided stroke requiring speech therapy, and physical and mental rehabilitation.  Unable to drive I was walking to the gym one Saturday morning when a sea of red shits ran by.  I started running too, and asked a woman what they were doing.  "Training for the Long Beach Half Marathon and Marathon with Cottonwood Church to raise money for Greatful Hearts," she replied.  This was sign that I could not ignore.  Although I had never run farther than a 10k, I committed to run the MARATHON.  I completed it in 6 hours and 2 minutes.  The next year I ran it in 5 hours and 45 minutes.  I then ran the LA Marathon in 5 hours and 31 minutes, and recently ran the OC Marathon in 5 hours and 6 minutes.  My goal is to complete my fifth marathon in less than 5 hours, support others in reaching their goals, and raise some money for Grateful Hearts.
