Brief Biography

I am married to Michelle going on 16 yrs, we have two kids Christian and Anna. I work as a Financial Advisor with Edward Jones Investments. Being an advisor and a runner allow me to do what I enjoy, which is help people reach their goals. I have been running since the early 80's. I started doing triathlons in 2002 and that is about the same time I started doing longer races.

Short Term Goals

Break 19 min in a 5k; Redeem myself from the poor performance I had at Mt Mist

I believe my community involvement through the race team and as a professional are a positive for the store. Also, with my performance levels and average build (vs the typical faster runners) inspires the average joe. I am also more involved with the triathlon club which gives the store more exposure to that group. Through my work I meet many people that are not runners and at every opportunity I mention Fleet Feet.
