On May 25, 2017 I officially retired from the sport of running, a sport that gave me 42 years of amazing experiences. It all started in 1975 by the encouragement of my fifth grade teacher who watched me run a mile during P.E. and told me that I was a natural runner. Over the years, I have accomplished some challenging ultra-endurance adventures in running, including a solo 3,260-mile run across the United States in 108 days as well as self-supported runs across Germany, Alaska, Montana, and the Mojave Desert all done completely alone by pushing an 80-pound stroller of gear. My running adventures have been through a non-profit youth fitness organization I created long ago known as The P.A.C.E. Fitness Foundation, and PACE stands for "Promoting Active Children Everywhere."

Essentially, I took teams of students from around the world on multi-week running adventures, those students running with me virtually as I was actually on the road crossing a state or country. As a former 5th grade teacher I used a custom online classroom as a window into my adventures so that students could follow along, learn, and hopefully be inspired. I've done all of this to encourage an active and healthy lifestyle in children, to promote goal setting, and to teach kids about locations beyond their school playgrounds in a fun and challenging way. Explore this site to learn more about the mileposts I've reached for and what lies ahead for me as I continue to reach for life's mileposts via cycling while encouraging people of all ages toward a healthier lifestyle... .
