About TheRunnerDad

FamilyYou’ve put some extra pounds.

You can’t remember the last time you exercised regularly (or at all).

Your kid(s) demand 100% of your attention day and night…but so does your job, your yard and your ever-growing honey-do list.

You feel like there is nowhere to turn and that you are failing at being a dad.

Take a deep breath. Hold it. Now exhale and repeat after me: 

I can be a superhero to my kids.

Now say it again, this time with conviction:

I CAN be a superhero to my kids!

I believe that every dad can be superhero to their kids.

I believe that there is enough time in the day / week / month / year to give your kids all they deserve. I believe that finding time to exercise is not only possible, but critical to yours and your family’s wellbeing.

Because, remember Dad:



“You make me smile and continue to fight the challenges daily. God bless you.”

– MJ

My Story

A few weeks after my first son was born, I found myself looking in the mirror and wondering how had I gotten to the point of losing my sense of self. I was exhausted from sleep deprivation and a too-long commute, overweight from “sympathy” eating during my wife’s pregnancy and not exercising, I decided that it was time to make some drastic changes. I wanted my son and future children to have a dad they were proud of…and I wanted to be around long enough to see them become parents themselves. So I laced up, stepped out the door and just continued putting one foot in front of the other, taking on one seemingly insurmountable challenge after another: one short (and sometimes labored) run here, one small life change there, one less extra comfort food everywhere.


I have come along way since that day looking in the mirror. I now have three amazing sons, ages 5, 3, and a newborn. I have lost almost 30 lbs, have run a few thousand miles, and thanks to a new job I have much more time with my family.
