Hello, first and foremost I am a married father of 2 with a son and a daughter. Without the support of my wife, Susan, this journey would not be possible. Originally from Milton, Delaware and a graduate of Cape Henlopen High School and Columbia Southern University I have called Holly Springs, North Carolina a suburb of Raleigh, home for the past 6 years.
A few years ago I ran my first half marathon and realized how much I enjoyed running. Soon there after I competed in my first trail race and was hooked immediately following. Trail running led me to discover the Western States 100 which erupted the desire to run ultra marathons. My ultimate running goals are to compete in the Western States 100 and qualify for the Boston Marathon.
I am your everyday American who loves his country and wants to never forgot the victims and their families of September 11th 2001. I didn’t live in New York City, Washington D.C. or Shanksville, PA when the attacks were carried out on our great country. I just have a passion to help others in need. For years this run has been stewing in my head to honor the victims and support the families of September 11th and our great military. I’m just your average American who wants to give back to the families and remember the fallen.
