I will be 68 years old next month. I am married, and the father of two daughters, and 4 grandchildren. I live in the mountains of southwestern NC. I been an attorney for 43 years, currently still operating my own solo practice.
I love to run. I had a total right hip replacement 12 years ago, The doctor said that I wasn't going to run again. In the last 6 years, I have run 22 marathons and qualified for and run the 2018 and 2022 Boston Marathons. Also, last year I ran the Zion Ultra 50K and this year I ran the Bryce Canyon Ultra 60K. I will be running the 2022 Chicago Marathon and the 2022 New York City Marathon, and the 2023 Boston Marathon. Currently, I love running with friends (in our local running group, Shameless Runners) my 14 year old grandson, and my 38 year old daughter, Jessica Eason. I am one of the 3 administrators our our Shameless Runners Facebook group (378 members).
