While playing indoor soccer in his forties, he discovered that he had more running endurance than other players his age. While on a trip to Las Vegas he read an article about running a half marathon down the Strip in Las Vegas. He focused his efforts on training to be able to run down the Vegas Strip in November of that year. Due to conflicts with scheduling, he did not run the half marathon in Las Vegas. Instead, he ran an extremely hilly local half marathon and placed 2nd in his age group.
