Time to officially kick off this campaign! For those who don't know this about me, running wasn't something I thought I'd ever get in to. I never understood why/how people would sign up for these crazy distances and then even worse, pay to put themselves through the pain! Even during my time in the service, I told myself it was just a "necessary evil". Fast forward about 13 years and you see my getting sucked into running the Ukrop's 10k here in Richmond by my close friend Brandon (thank you!). Well 5 races and 1,250 miles later, I can say I certainly haven't looked back! For me, and I'm sure for most runners, running is freedom. It's been a way to clear my mind after hard days, a momentary pause from the chaos and just overall a way celebrate life. To make things even better, I've been so fortunate to have such an amazing wife, family, and group of friends supporting me the entire way! Now as I look at the 2024 race schedule, I can't think of a better way of celebrating life and overall wellness than by joining the RUN FOR AUTISM team in the 2024 Chicago Marathon in October. Help me in supporting this awesome cause!
