Running accomplishments: View my Pikes Peak Ascent/Marathon results
Still running after 20+ years.

What I like about trail/mountain running:
Trail or mounting running is unique in that it provides something new every time out. Where else can you go and not see anyone for hours.

Favorite running trail and why:
Thought I had one and then last week I ran up a volcano in Nicaragua through a cloud forest - so I don't know.

Favorite trail/mountain race and why:
Favorite mountain race is still the round trip on the Peak with Imogene a close second.

Best running experience:
1981 round trip on the Peak. One of those races where everything went better than planned and still felt like I could turn around and do it all over again.

Worst running experience:
None of them were that bad - I'm still running.

Running pet peeves:
Dogs not on leashes.

Mountain Biking
Skiing, Ski racing
Reading

Other stuff:
When it hurts - stop and eat ice cream.
