Denny’s passions include speaking, flying, running marathons and half marathons with Kristan Cole, his wife, and on the more sedimentary side, movies and Broadway Plays. The three most recent additions to his bucket list are to complete an Iron Man, run the London Marathon and play a round of golf without a three-putt green, which he says may be the most difficult of the three.
