Dad, Runner, & trying to get better at both.

I’m happily married with 4 kids. I am also fixed. My kids and my family take up most of my time outside of work but provide the best times in my life. They also are the fuel for my parenting blog, The Suburban Father Alliance. My other spare time is usually spent in the wee hours of the morning or lunch breaks running, bicycling, or doing other healthy activities. My true passion is Running and keeping up with the latest running trends, and shoes. This passion is what prompted me to start Take it on the Run. I sell running shoes and apparel to clients around the world.Oh, I’ve got a real job also… I’m an IT Project Manager for a large St. Louis-based company.Ready to talk or know what you want?
