This year I am training in honor of Michelle Young. In August 2013, Michelle was diagnosed with with follicular non-Hodgins lymphoma, stage 4, and is currently undergoing treatment.
I have only met Michelle a few times, but I used to work with her daughter, Sara Butch, at US Bank and now occasionally see her another one of her daughters, Lisa Rosenboom, when I’m out on medical calls.
I am asking you to support me by contributing as generously as you can to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society on my behalf. Whatever you can contribute is greatly appreciated. Please visit my fundraising page at
On the eve of the Boston Marathon, we at Spartan Race, along with the country, pay tribute to all the victims and survivors of last year’s attack.
Pictured are athletes and citizens who lived through the events and won’t let tragedy grind them to a halt. This series shot by Robert X. Fogerty for Dear World captures the resilience of those affected that can’t be dampened. Please visit their site to learn more about these people’s stories and pay tribute.
Boston is as strong as community as the world has. We are proud to be part of it. On Marathon Monday, we will be there and along with the rest of the world, we will be watching a city recover as one.
I’m sure they’ve improved goggle technology, but I still like my swedes. First new pair of goggles in 15 years (I lost my other ones somewhere between here and Costa Rica).

50 mile bike with the Tahoe team. It was 20 degrees outside when we started (6:30am) and had warmed up to 40 by the time we finished. Still a great day to ride and always fun to be out with everyone. GO TEAM!
