I'm Neal Billetdeaux, Sam's dad. We joined the elite d-family 10 years ago following a routine trip to the pediatrician and, well, the rest is history. Oh yeah, I'm Laura's husband too and, well, that's a whole lot more history - 23 awesome years! And Carolyn's dad, our gorgeous 20-year old daughter who is a senior at NYU. For those who don't know me, my CWD claim to fame is the night I got up to check Sam and, well, tried to check our dog instead - that's what sleep deprivation will do. I'm also one of the CWD teen group leaders and general, all-around conference go-fer.
I have been known to put in a few road miles; I've run one marathon (Detroit) and several trail and road halfs. In my stupidity, I got caught up in some serious overtraining and tore a ligament in my hip 6 weeks before Chicago. That led to a few pounds and, well, fortunately that's now history, too, thanks to a lot of family and CWD support. The reason I love running is because it's something I can do. Running fits into my schedule and I can take it anywhere I go. In fact, some of my most memorable runs have been in far away places. My goal this year is to qualify for Boston '09 at the Detroit marathon this fall - 50 year-olds get a good break at 3:30 - and to have a blast at WDW in January with the awesome group on this list.
