Off-Day ActivityPlaying guitar in my church band

Married to my high school sweetheart for 39 years. Began running in college as a member of the University of Evansville Purple Aces Track Team (converted high jumper) and haven't looked back (except for the occasional knee replacement, but hey - quality of life now, right?) I coach girls track and cross country at our local high school in Northern Indiana. Greatest group of young athletes ever assembled. The job that pays the bills is as Executive Director of a small nonprofit that provides food, housing assistance, clothing, and medication assistance to the underserved of our community. I've completed 16 marathons, and despite having both knees totally replaced, I now manage 2 or 3 runs a week and hope to get a half marathon done next year. I started a nutrition plan in early September and have lost about 30 pounds of the post-op weight.
