I received my BS from UF in Exercise Science and my MS from University of South Carolina in Exercise Physiology. I was state runner-up in cross country in class AA in Florida in 1975. I ran briefly at Furman University and have road raced at distances from 5k to the marathon. I was assistant track and cross country coach at Spring Valley High school and helped direct our team to a state championship. Recently I coached the boys cross country team at South Fork High School. Over the years I have coached a number of individuals of varying ages and abilities. I am married with two children and have a passion for everything running.
