Biker, Runner, Walker. I learned to run before learning how to be a walker. I was hooked after a friend talked me into running a 4 mile race between Saratoga and Los Gatos. During the following years I ran over 50 10K’s and over 25 half marathon’s. My first full marathon was the beautiful Avenue of the Giants marathon. Other marathons include Silicon Valley, San Francisco, Marine Corp, and London. After running 12 marathons, I now enjoy walking. Walking keeps me in shape for hiking mountain trails and back packing in the Sierra’s. Biking is my favorite cross training activity.

I joined Austin Fit in 1997, moved to San Jose and joined San Jose Fit when it started in 1998. The friendly runners/walkers at SJ Fit plus the great training keeps me coming back for more.
