Hi family and friends.  I am back with a updated web site in 2017! You can follow what my family and I have been up to – marathons and triathlon , travel, work, and much more.


In 2008 we moved from our old home where my parents had lived every year of my life. As Dr. Seuss says, "don't cry because its over, smile because it happened". So with that in mind, we are thankful for the memories and looking forward to the future with much joy and excitement.

 Marathon Adventures                       


Through out my years, I've enjoyed running both the small and big marathons in the United States. I've also enjoyed traveling outside of the country with a group called Marathon Tours.  With that group, my brother and I completed a goal of running the 7 Continents. We started that goal in 2000 and we finished our 7th continent in 2013 . Read more on the next page.

Making a Cedar Strip Kayak

I would like to share with you the making of my cedar strip Kayak.  Today I use the kayak on local lakes and rivers to enjoy our wonderful wildlife up close, and am stopped often by other kayakers wanting to know more about my kayak. 

Travel  Adventures        

In 2008, I was able to visit two continents in one summer.  Mid May, I visited China.  In July, I had a second awesome trip to Peru.  There I hiked the Inca Trails near Pizac for nearly four days and traveled to Machu Picchu for the thrill of a lifetime. Also took a few cool trips in the U.S.A.. I saw Yosemite National Park with my brother's church group from St. Vincent de Paul in San Francisco. I had other fun adventure in Wisconsin Dells.
