I have been an avid runner since 1998 and have been running marathons since 1999. I have 8 under my belt and am currently trying to break 4 hours in 2006. My beautiful and talented wife, Jennifer, thinks I am one hot and beefy catch (and she’s right)! My son thinks I am the coolest, at least that is what I translate from his babbling. No stranger to higher education, I have 3 college degrees in make believe subjects such as Physics, Nuclear Engineering and Statistics but do not carry a pocket protector, but secretly want a lab coat embroidered with my name. Officially, I am Research Associate for the University of Tennessee (Go Vols) by day and a dedicated superhero at night.
