I have been active all my life and last year decided to take on Triathlons. I became addicted to the sport and have been training to do better. This year I started running in 5K races, again became addicted. The 5K races really help me in my conditioning for the triathlons and so far have been such a blast. My goal this year is to place in the top 5 in my age group at the Chicago Lifetime Tri along with getting my 5K time down to the 20:00-21:00 mark.
I have been blessed with a wonderful wife Heather and 4 children, Jensyn, Lexi, Hannah and Parker who all support me. They always come to cheer me on and yes once in a while make fun of me for doing something dorky! Their support is a major help and drive in keeping me going!
I am joining the LU race team to give back to the people and charities in need. I believe we all should do our part in helping out others and this is me doing what I love and being able to give back at the same time!
I will be running for :
Homes for Our Troops: strongly committed to helping those who have selflessly given to their country and have returned home with serious disabilities and injuries.
I strongly believe in honoring and supporting our troops of all branches. Both active and retired. They all deserve our respect and gratitude.
I will also be giving a portion of the funds I raise to the wonderful charities in the LU race series!
Thank you LU for allowing all of us this opportunity and to all of the people that will help me raise money for these excellent causes!
