    Early in life I was always athletic. Growing up I played in just about every organized sport that was available and playtime generally revolved around a pick up game of one sort or another.

    While baseball was my favorite, running is what I was best at.

    In junior high when a local track team formed I was quick to join and in high school I was one of the top 1 and 2 milers in my conference.

    Unfortunately there were "cooler" things to do and after a transfer to a far more competitive school, I lost interest.

    After a hiatus of nearly 30 years I was prodded back into running at a company event. The result was not good at all but my competitive nature was enough to get me to want to do it again and be better.

    Soon I was back to running regularly and realized I was still pretty good at it; winning a few age group awards in smaller races.

    It wasn't long before I was bitten by the marathon bug and began to work towards a long forgotten dream. To qualify for and run the Boston Marathon.

    The great thing about the future is that you will never know what it will bring. I am just grateful that I have rediscovered my passion for running as well as the wonderful community of runners I have met along the way.

    I was never very active when I was younger. I did all the normal kid stuff but having asthma I let it limit me. Having bad knees didn't help either.

    As I got older I also struggled with my weight to where I was 191 pounds at one point.

    Eventually with a good plan I was able to get back to a healthy weight but I still let my body limit what I though I could do.

    Finally I decided to be the boss of me and took up running in 2014. It was hard but once I realized that it was possible to run with asthma, I kept pressing forward and was able to increase my distance. My knees don't bother me now as well.

    I love the friends I have made through running and while I may be a turtle, at least I'm in charge and make the most of the ability I have.
