Marathon News – Returning to Cleveland


I’ve never lived in Cleveland.  I’ve have no real ties to the city.  I was born and raised in Erie, Pa.

In 1971 I wrote and received back a fan letter from the Cleveland Browns.  I’ve had an fascination with Cleveland ever since.

Fast forward to 2013, I moved away from Erie, I’ve traveled the world with the US Air Force, years into my running career, and I was ready to score my first sub four hour marathon.  Cleveland was the place I wanted to do it.

In the marathon the winds of fate are not always kind, a fast start, rising temperatures, and the next thing I knew I was simply happy to finish.

BUT IN 2017 I’m back…..

I’ll once again run the Rite Aid Cleveland Marathon and this time, a sub four is coming home with me. AND the best news for you….I have a free race entry to give away.  I’ll be giving away one free entry into the race the week of 1 May.

Check back often for training tips and the spin up for my return to Cleveland.
