Special guest

Years have come and gone, but running has always been a constant. Whether it is traveling to a new place or moving to a new city, you can always throw on your running shoes and go exploring. My favorite parts going on vacation or traveling for work always include getting to my destination, then exploring the new area with an easy couple miles.

I was competitive for so long and enjoyed every race I lined up for, whether it was a local 5k with 100 people, a national championship in college or trying to make a national US team. The nerves and butterflies before the gun always let me know that I was ready to take on the challenge ahead.

Lately I have traded in my competitive shoes for coaching shoes and it is a totally different thrill. There are still butterflies and nerves before the race, but this time it is for my athletes and the thought of knowing I have no control anymore once the gun goes off.

I spend my days working for Dell EMC Technologies as a Data Center Specialist in Oklahoma City. My beautiful wife Julie and I have one amazing little girl with fiery red hair named Sutton Kate. We enjoying playing outside, watching videos, playing at parks, going on family runs, and building forts in the living room.
