Madison, WI – 11/13/22
My 24th marathon. I ran this as a celebration of life of Suellen and her love of running in costume. I was Weird Al, complete with working mini-accordion. So many cheers and smiles and friends along the course. I ran just under 4 hours. Suellen got to run the half marathon in spirit, with the help of My Team Triumph, who ran with an empty wheelchair with her picture in it.

Sugar River Tri (duathlon)

Juneau, AK – 7/24/22
My wife Suellen trained through chemo to walk a 5k, and she did it! It was hard and she needed a cane, but we made it 3.1 miles.
Dances with Dirt, Devil’s Lake trail half marathon

J-Hawk Early Bird Duathlon
Whitewater, WI – 5/1/22
Early season duathlon, it was chilly and rained a little. I couldn’t stay with the lead woman on the first run, but hammered the bike to pass her and build enough lead to not be caught on the second run. I finished first overall woman.
Run from the Taxman half marathon
Delafield, WI – 4/16/22
