Welcome to our Bio Page.
We hope you enjoy and are inspired by our stories, and set out to start your own stories.
My name is Joe. I am originally from Louisville but now reside in New Albany. I have 2 little boys who demand most of my time and I wouldn’t have it any other way. My boys are BMX racers so we spend a lot of time at the track. I also enjoy watching College Basketball (GO CARDS!!), movies, cycling, and of course running!
I started running in late February 2008 in an effort to lose weight and get healthy! I soon developed a passion for running and have finished over 60 races including duathlons. I’ve finished numerous 5K’s & 10K’s, 5 Half Marathons, and a Marathon.
Our goal with RunTheVille is to connect area runners and walkers along with promoting the sport of running
Hello, my name is Tom. I was born in Tulsa, OK, and have moved around a lot over the course of my life. I moved to the Louisville area in '99. I am 40+ years old and the IS manager for a heavy construction equipment Dealer based out of Chicago, IL and moved to Indianapolis in 2009.
The reason I have joined Joe on this journey is in large part due to my father. In February 2007, I lost my father to a blood clot in his lungs only 5 days after having triple heart bypass surgery. My father had a heart attack and spent a little over a week in the hospital. I got to spend that week with my father in Arkansas, and I made a promise to him to get myself into shape, and to do what I can to ensure that I don't find myself in the same place. I reached my heaviest at 210 lbs, and I hope to get down to around 170.
Running for me is more than just a way to lose weight and get into shape though. It gives me a chance to get outside, and enjoy nature, and to clear my mind. Don't get me wrong, it wasn't easy, but I have truly come to enjoy it in a short period, and actually look forward to getting home, trading the loafers for running shoes and hitting the road.
I hope that our site, and stories, and the stories of others in our forums may inspire you to get off the couch and join us on the road.
