Welcome to My LIVESTRONG Page

Thanks, for looking at this page and supporting me while I train for the 2012 Pittsburgh Half Marathon.

At the beginning, i was training for my weight loss journey and becoming a healthier person. But several weeks into my training, my father was diagnosed with bladder cancer, so I decided to do this for my father and help support cancer research.

About my father:
Late December 2011, with severe pain he went to the hospital and was later that day was diagnosed with bladder cancer. With one round of treatment the cancer growth slowed, but he still in a strong battle against a tough villain. His second round of treatment and testing will be finished early May.

About me:
20 months ago, I was a 5'7 242 lb. fat guy who changed his life and now i'm 141 lb. I started running March 2011 to lose weight and now as a chance to place in my age group (mens 35-39) in the Pittsburgh Half Marathon May 6th, 2012.

BeStrong, FinishStrong, LiveStrong
