Personal Interests

  • Spending time with family and friends
  • Running
  • Golf
  • Reading
  • Music
  • Training for long distance races


At age 40, I started a running group and have run five marathons (26.2 miles).   The group has helped me to continue  running long distances.  Over the past 12 plus years, we have "recruited" and trained a few so that they could become a member of the Marathon Club.   Over the years, I have met many people through running and have continued many of those friendships. 

By 50,  my goal was to have completed 5 full marathons--5 under 50!  Although I have not run a full marathon in almost 3 years, I still enjoy running both alone and with our group.    Running is a great way to "stay young", get those positive endorphins flowing, relieve stress, and meet new people   

There are many smaller races that can be  run such as the Corporate Challenge in Albany, the Boilermaker in Utica, and the Memorial Day Run in Voorheesville, and the Last Run in Albany.   There is no way that I would have completed the become a long distance runner or completed those marathongs without the support of the group, 1, 2, 10.   If you think you could never run or complete a marathon..............I once thought so too!  Anyone can run one with the right training, motivation, and a supportive group.
