66, Financial Advisor at B Riley Wealth Management

Family: Wife, Ann, 3 grown children, 6 grandchildren

Team Player: I’m a Hump Day Ride Leader with the Memphis Hightailers (but inactive during COVID) and 2021 TriDot Training Ambassador. I also run with Memphis Runners & Track Club.

Recent Runs: Very few during 2020 due to COVID, but I did participate in some virtual 5Ks & 10Ks, Big River Crossing Half Marathon, and the St. Jude Marathon.

Favorite Fitness Accomplishment: Completing my first IRONMAN 140.6 triathlon at age 62.

I <3 Triathlons: I like how supportive the triathlon community is, the friendships I’ve made, and that I train and push myself.

Upcoming Triathlons: Memphis in May Olympic & Sprint, Ludington Lighthouse Olympic (August), Michigan Titanium (140.6) (August), IRONMAN Michigan 70.3 (September),  and IRONMAN Memphis 70.3 (October).   

Obstacle Course: I had knee surgery in February 2019 to replace cartilage on my left femur. Post-surgery, I developed severe sciatica that lasted about six months. Thanks to Dr. Sara Michael at 901 Physical Therapy, Mark Akin at Envision Fitness, and Dr. Matt Hayden at Chiropractic Memphis for putting me back together!

Bucket List: I would love to qualify for IRONMAN World Championships in Kona, but a lot of people will have to die for me to have a chance!

Best Eats: Joe’s Fried Chicken. I eat the fried chicken dinner (go for the spicy gravy!) and a glass of red wine.
