2005 Pikes Peak Doubler. Not fast by any means, but got-er-done!
What I like about trail/mountain running:
I love running and hiking on trails because it takes me to a quiet place away from everything that is busy. This is going to sound gross but here goes...I like the "dirt-line" when I take my socks off after a trail run!
Favorite running trail and why:
Barr Trail is my favorite trail. Pikes Peak was my first 14er. (Currently 23 summits) There is something special about Pikes Peak and the Barr trail. Everyone is always in a good mood up there.
Favorite trail/mountain race and why:
Pikes Peak Marathon and Barr Trail Mountain Race. Why? Because gravity is my friend!!
Best running experience:
There is always something unique that happens on each run which qualifies it as a best, but the 2008 bear experience ranks as THE BEST!
Worst running experience:
2006 Pikes Peak Marathon. 3 hours of interrupted sleep and I remember sitting on the edge of the bed saying "there's no way!" Set a record for my worst PPM time, but gave it my best!
Neatest thing found on a run:
Running related bathroom stop story:
A lot of Gatorade = A lot of stops!
Something non running related that no one would guess about me:
I used to weigh... a lot more than I do now!
Other hobbies and interests:
Currently have 8 14ers in the bag (including 23 Pikes Peaks)and hope to add Longs and others by September.
