Brian began running again after at least a forty year running layoff in 2009, training with Austin Fit for the Cap 10K.
He continued with the half marathon training group that summer. His first half marathon was the 2009 San Antonio Rock and Roll Half. Brian returned to Austin Fit in 2010 as an assistant half marathon coach and has coached again every year since. He has completed numerous 5K, 10K and 10 mile races as well as 21 half marathons. He has run the Air Force Half with his daughter Kelly (a USAF Lt. Colonel), and run the San Antonio and Shiner Half with his daughter Cathleen (a middle school band director). He has successfully completed the Austin Distance Challenge several times, and runs as a member of the Texas Beef Team. Brian enjoys the camaraderie of running with groups and the fun and achievement involved in meeting his running goals and helping his runners achieve theirs. He is looking forward to running with his 2017 running group, and hope they have as much fun as he has had running with Austin Fit.
