Ed was a lifelong athlete. He enjoyed skiing, basketball and long distance running. He completed nearly forty marathons, including London, Prague, New York and Boston. His first was the Marine Corps Marathon in Washington D.C. in 1983 (pictured right), which he went on to run several more times, including the 1995 race when he joined his two sons in running their first marathons.
His love of running inspired many others in the community. He had a smile and a positive word for all runners, from the winners to those in the back of the pack. He enjoyed participating weekend training runs along with his brother and many friends in the mountains of Caledonia State Park in Fayetteville, PA.
LIVESTRONG at the YMCA is a program designed to treat the whole person. It is a 12-week evidenced based program that helps cancer survivors reclaim their health and well-being following a cancer diagnosis.
