  • Miami Beach, Florida


I've run at least 1 mile for 811 consecutive days.

After 10 years of not running in any races, I'm starting to run in them again.

  • July 17, 2021: Robinette's Wine Run 5k | Grand Rapids, Michigan | 2nd place overall | 6:47 per mile pace
  • September 19, 2021: Lake Michigan Credit Union Bridge Run | Grand Rapids, Michigan | 12th place overall | 5:57 per mile pace

I'm tentatively planning to run in the Halloween 4-Miler or Half-Marathon here in Miami Beach. The route is my favorite to run as it's along South Pointe Park and the boardwalk.

I'm writing again albeit not as consistently as I want. Too many people here in Miami Beach have told me to start writing again. I've been itching to write all year long and, well, here I am.
