Living Without Regrets

A lot has changed since my last post – I moved to New York, left HTSElite, and am taking a sabbatical from pro running. In a profession where standards are constantly inclining and satisfaction is short-lived, I’m content with what I achieved. Although most in the biz define themselves by Olympic births, there’s a sweet simplicity in being fulfilled by accomplishing individual goals based on our own particular assets. And that’s where I’m at!

This isn’t goodbye forever though. If or when the itch to crush workouts, rip PR’s, and throw out an elbow at the competition returns I’ll lace up my spikes again. But, first on my bucket list is to snag a job, spend time with my ailing father, and be 20-something in the city!

I’m not sure where this leaves the travels of this blog. But, I do want to thank everyone that’s read, commented, or sent an uplifting e-mail. It’s been a great journey…

  1. I was watching “Proper Running Technique” on youtube and saw this website as a result. After reading about your life I just wanted to encourage you, however that helps I don’t know, but I am glad you write and make your struggles open to people. In the day of Facebook where everyone’s life looks perfect you bring a dose of reality to it. Thank you. Also I wanted to tell you just in case you are not already, that following Christ will ensure you that you did not run the race in vain Galatians 2:2. Go to to learn more. God Bless!

  2. You have done a lot more than most people of your age. As a 30+ male I recently started running and hoping to do a full marathon once in my life. If I can be 1/4th as good as you I will be just happy.

    Keep going, whatever you are doing, wish you the best.

  3. Watched a lot of running videos. Never saw a smoother runner. Hope you get your batteries recharged and come back.
