My wife and I enjoy running long distances. We ran our first half-marathon in September 2008. Our first full marathon was October 2009. Our daughter runs cross country and earned her first varsity letter as a freshman. I like drinking tea, clowning around with friends, and making people laugh. My favorite verse is Zephaniah 3:17, "The LORD your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.
