Relay Runner for the MS Run the US - 2016 Relay
What: The MS Run the US - 2016 Relay is a 3,000 - mile relay across America to raise awareness and funds to help CURE Multiple Sclerosis (MS)! The Relay begins in April 2016 in Los Angeles, CA and is completed in August 2016 in New York, NY. I am running the ninth segment from Wray, Colorado to Holdrege, Nebraska, roughly 165 miles over 6 days.
Eighteen (18) runners have been selected to run on average 160-miles over six consecutive days during their individually assigned segment. Each runner dedicates a week of running on the road with the Relay, while collectively the Relay spans a distance and duration of 3,000-miles in 4 months.
Location: Bellevue, Nebraska
Hometown: Kings Mountain, North Carolina

Segment(s): 9; Wray, Colorado to Holdrege, NE; June 8-13; 165 miles
I have always been a “runner”, but within the past few years I started to take it more serious. I have competed in a few local races but nothing too special. Someday I hope to run in the Western States 100.
When someone asks me why I run so much, I always respond with, it’s the “high”, the ability to push your body farther than you ever thought it was possible.
I did not grow up around a parent or any family members that had MS, I only heard about this disease after I met my Wife and was introduced to her Mother.
When I initially heard about the MS Run the US Relay Team I was immediately drawn in, I knew I could do something I love for someone that I love.
