Tina Howe, Avid Marathoner, Runs World’s Highest in Everest

Tina Howe of Bill Howe Family of Companies’ Runs in Tenzing-Hillary Everest Marathon
Owner and avid Marathon runner to run the “World’s Highest Marathon” on May 29

May 23, 2017, San Diego, CA- The Bill Howe Family of Companies started with Bill Howe and Bill Howe Sr. as AM/PM Sewer & Drain cleaning in San Diego. They had a handful of employees and operated out of a tiny studio in Pacific Beach when Tina joined the company, freshly arrived from England.  37 years later, the company has grown to a full home service operation in San Diego for plumbing, heating & air, epoxy drain relining solutions, and restoration & reconstruction. Bill and Tina Howe have also built it as a true family company; three of their daughters are in leadership roles after 10 years in the company, their niece is the Human Resource Manager with 20 years in the company, and many of the employees work alongside their own families within the company of 170 employees.

The Tenzing-Hillary Everest Marathon is held annually and begins in Kathmandu. It is a three-week event, where runners acclimatize to the changing elevation in a systematic method while trekking from the Capital city to Everest Base Camp where the race begins. The starting point elevation at Everest Base Camp is 17,598 ft. and at the finish of the 26.2 marathon, the elevation at Namche Bazaar is at 11,306 ft. Runners will also travel two uphill portions in the race to 18,200 ft. at Kalapatthar where they will enjoy the best views of Everest. The marathon is held in the honor of Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa, as they were the first to reach the summit on May 29, 1953.

Tina Howe helped to build the company’s division in drain cleaning in San Diego, and then plumbing, heating, cooling, and more along with raising her family. However, she didn’t begin running marathons until the age of 40. Since her first race, she has completed a marathon on every continent, including the Great Wall Marathon and Kilimanjaro. She has also completed a marathon in 26 states and plans on completing all 50 states by the time she turns 60. “I have always wanted to hike Everest,” said Tina Howe, Vice President of Bill Howe Family of Companies. “Participating in the Everest Marathon is even better. I get to immerse myself in the panoramic views of the Himalayan mountains while doing what I love, running.”

Tina has been sending regular updates about her journey and sharing through social media on the Bill Howe Family of Companies Facebook Page. In addition to being an avid marathoner, Tina Howe is also a highly-recognized leader in the San Diego plumbing industry. She has been named as a Woman of Influence and recognized with several local honors.

What Joel C says about us

Very Satisfied. Michael is always on time, Michael has been doing all of the plumbing related to our remodel. He always does exactly what he commits to do within the estimated cost. He keeps me informed if any wrinkles pop up, and his plumbing skills are excellent as we have had no problems or issues arise after he has left. Very professional! Highly recommend.

What Rick M says about us

We had other companies come out for estimates on what was considered a major job with jackhammers and replacing cast iron pipes under the house… having been stung before, we wanted another estimate just to make sure we were making an informed decision. The prior estimates went up to $21,000!
Bill Howe sent us an amazing veteran plumber, Dashawn and his co- worker Anthony. Dashawn did a thorough check of the problem, explained what he thought was needed … he did a final check and we were able to see for ourselves what was the problem. He recommended a complete cleaning to de-scale the pipes, and not the major work we dreaded. Thanks to his solid analysis and patience in making sure we saw what he saw, the issue was resolved completely, and saved us thousands of unnecessary work. None of the other estimates included the cleaning; only the major repairs. Thanks to Dashawn’s knowledge, professionalism and honesty, we’re Bill Howe customers.

What Carolyn Housman says about us

This was our second excellent experience with Bill Howe. We had a blocked kitchen sink drain 8/5. I was able to get a same day appointment which is AMAZING. Person on phone was very courteous and set me up right away. Tony arrived at the house (called me 30 minutes out so I was able to be ready). He diagnosed the issue (blocked drain, not the garbage compactor) and was able to snake it and ran the water for 10 minutes to be sure the drains were clear. He cleaned up everything and you would not have known he was even there. Thank-you Tony and Bill Howe, you always know how.

What Ed Gohlich says about us

Cory was our technician on this job. We had a time sensitive repair issue and Bill Howe understood and assisted with getting the job done quickly.
Cory was on time to start the job and finished it quickly. Upon his leaving our home he’s was courteous, very knowledgeable, explaining what the problem was and how he fixed it. Very good communication and this is the way it’s has always been when we use Bill Howe plumbing.
Great company to work with.
Thanks Cory.

What Bridgett says about us

I am extremely happy with the service we received from Bill Howe Plumbing. We were given an incorrect diagnosis of our main sewer line from another vendor, but Bill Howe’s servicemen came out for a second opinion, correctly diagnosed our problem and resolved our back up issues. We will continue to use Bill Howe for all our future plumbing needs!

Thank you Bill Howe Plumbing.
