Coach / Instructor
I’m really excited about Coaching with Happy Feet. I have been happily married to Kelly since December of 1995. We have two wonderful Children, Blake and Abbie. Blake (13) is in his first year of cross country with the middle school and ran track for the first time last summer with Happy Feet. Abbie is in 3rd grade at McKillop Elementary and has loved going to Happy Feet and plans to try cross country for the first time this fall. I started work with Raytheon as a software engineer right after graduating from the University of Arkansas in 1996. I work Research and Development for Maritime Radar Systems which has me traveling to many locations around the world. I have done runs on every continent besides Australia and Antartica. I have been running off and on since middle school and have done several races from 5K to the marathon and a sprint triathlon. My PRs are 20:07 for the 5K, 1:48:04 for the half marathon, 4:17:05 for the marathon, and 1:25:19 for the sprint Triathlon (750M swim, 14 mile bike, and 5K run).
Hebrews 12:1 Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us.
