I grew up in St. Louis and have been blessed to live in the Kansas City area for about 40 years. I am married with 4 mostly grown children.
My career is in the Information Technology area, specializing as a Security Architect.
I had made fitness a regular activity in my life for many years, but until fairly recently I was not a runner. With encouragement from a personal trainer and armed with a beginner training plan I started running about 4 years ago. I ran my first 5K about 4 months later and since then running has become an important part of my life.
This summer, I decided to try the Half Marathon training program from KCTC on Saturday mornings to prepare for my 7th half marathon. I really enjoyed the community spirit of the KCTC members on the group run and socializing afterwards for breakfast on a few occasions.
I know that the many programs that KCTC provides require a lot of volunteer time and effort, and am glad to serve the community as a member of the board.
