We moved to Hickory, NC in the summer of 1996. I played soccer for a few seasons in Hickory and two seasons in Winston-Salem. I had some fun, some success but the fire was gone. When I turned 50, I decided to run a marathon. Started to train in March and ran the Berlin Marathon in 1999. I felt I could do better and ran the Los Angeles Marathon in a much better time. A few 10 k & 5 k races, the Marathon Club Menden 100 km race and a few half marathons followed. Then, I landed on the track & the field. The rest is history.
