Why I'm Running:
In 2010, I was diagnosed with diabetes at the age of 40. I've been on a 5 year campaign to get in shape; stay in shape, and lose weight. I've had some good success, but I want to do even better. My goal is to complete my first half marathon and lose 20 pounds. In 2013, I lost my sister, Rhonda, to diabetes at the age of 48. I'm raising money for Mercy House (the nonprofit my wife and I founded in 2010) as motivation to hit my goals and in memory of my sister.
Act Justly. Love Mercy. Run Humbly.
