My name is Joshua aka “Dewey,” and I love to run! After spending over 20 years in the US Air Force traveling/running around the world, I decided to retire and return as DoD Civilian. When I am not prepping or traveling for a race, I am sitting in the classroom as an MBA student at the College of William & Mary.
All of my great ideas are born and my problems solved as my feet glide across the ground below me. I ran track in high school (200 & 1-mile relay), but replaced it with bodybuilding shortly after joining the Air Force. My distance running adventures began the summer of 2010. I went on a two-week road trip to the Pacific Northwest; during my planning, I discovered one of the cities was hosting its annual 10k race on the beach. I figured why not try it out, I had about a month to train. How hard could a 10k really be, right? I quickly discovered that six miles was a long way! However, once I crossed that finish line, I set course on a life-changing journey. Within a couple of months, I kicked the weightlifting habit, lost 35 pounds of muscle, and signed up for my first marathon. I have been hooked ever since – finding new challenges and new paths to travel.
Another hobby I enjoy is creating craft beer…I consider running fuel.
