I’m a 33-year-old father of three. Noah’s 12 – a studious, smarter-than-the-average-bear kind of kid; MacKenzie’s 10, a I-just-want-a-pet-maybe-a-horse kinda gal and Baby Joe – he’s 2 1/2 – well, his is an interesting story (one that he tells in a mixture of English and gibberish which we affectionately refer to as Joepanese – it’s gotten much better in the last 6 months).
Update 5/22/2012: My day job is as a reporter with the Shelton-Mason County Journal in Washington. I often joke that I do the journalism gig so I can feed my running habit – and that’s probably more than half true. Still, I believe in the long-lasting value of telling the stories of the people in a small town. Whether it’s a watchdog role or telling about the life of someone who recently passed, everyone has a story. Everyone.
In my spare time, I serve as executive director of the Potomac Highlands Distance Club, a member of the Road Runners Club of America. Read more, and get our 2012 calendar, at http://www.PhDispatch.com.
I run. I write. I read. And with all else, I do the best I can.
