I’m a runner, father, husband, artist, and business owner of Canvas Host, LLC. This blog is mostly about running, though you’ll likely read posts touching on all of those cross sections of my life.
Growing up, I was never much for team sports, and found solo activities like hiking, bicycling, and running a better fit. I began running for exercise in college and ran my first Hood to Coast in 2001, and it has been a part of my life ever since.
Running is whatever I want to make of it. It can be fun or serious, easy or hard, relaxing or challenging, or all of the above. I’ll run in any weather conditions. ANY. I like the challenge. When I’m out there, trail or road, the miles help focus me and allow me to problem solve all sorts of things going on with my work or life.
When I’m not running, I’m busy with my business — an international website hosting and domain registration service — as well as being an attentive husband and father to very energetic young men.
If you’re reading this and thinking about racing or relaying for the first time, here’s a few tidbits of advice:
- Take it slow and easy at first. You will find your groove and pace in time. Don’t push it so hard you burn out early.
- Trust your team to support you when you need, and be sure to help your teammates out when they’re on the course.
- While relaying is challenging, the reward will waiting for you when you finish.
- Remember to have *fun*! 🙂
