Thank you for visiting my page!
Thursday, November 15th, I will be starting UltraCentric 72 hour Ultra Marathon. Even though this will be my longest event to date and the first real “stress test” on all the new cool hardware in my leg, I am really looking forward to the race. Over the 72 hours, there are going to be a lot of highs and lows as well the potential for blood and tears, on top of the dirt and sweat. Like I always say.. GOOD TIMES! This race will also give me a total 4320 minutes to reflect on why I have the freedom to do and say what I like, as well as why, on days like November 6th, I have the right to cast a vote for the candidate of my choice, no matter who that may be. We all have these rights, because many Americans have fought and died for them.
Whether you agree with it or not, the United States is involved in multiple wars and conflicts. We have men and women sent into harm’s way by our elected officials. Some of them do not return to their families and many more come back mentally and physically wounded. It’s for these Great Americans that I am taking on this 72 hour ultra. No matter how much it sucks, how tired I get, or how much I want to quit, it doesn’t even come close to what some of our Veterans deal with, on a daily basis when they return from active duty. That is why I am honored to be able to run and raise money for an organization like, Team Red, White, and Blue.
While toeing the start line of a 72 hour ultra marathon is scary enough (to me at least), I have also set a personal distance goal of 200 miles in the 72 hours. In addition to that, I have another goal to raise as much money as possible for our wounded veterans and Team Red, White, and Blue. That is where I need your help. Whether it is $500.00, .50 cents, or even forwarding this link to friends and family, every little bit helps. It is very easy. All you have to do is click the secure link below.

Thank you very much and lets make this day count..!
