I'm 48 (almost 49) years old and relatively new to the sport of running but have enthusiastically embraced it as an important part of my healthy lifestyle. I also enjoy paddle boarding, cycling, cross country skiing and snow shoeing. I work for a large credit union in Winnipeg as an environmental sustainability manager. My wife and I have been married for 21 year and we have two great kids - Tekla (16 years old) and Ellis (14 years old). I am very active in my local community serving as a volunteer with our community center board and with a number of other local non-profits. I like good food and cooking, travel, reading, gardening and staying active. I run and cycle throughout our frigid Winnipeg winters.
I started run-commuting to work in the spring of 2012 and since then have competed in a number of running events including: 5 kms (19:28 PR in 2015) 10 kms (41:12 in 2015) half marathons (1:29:44 PR in 2015) and a full marathon (Twin Cities in October 2014, 3:15:02). I qualified for Boston and will be running it in 2016!
