Gordon Neal

City: Colorado Springs State: CO Country: US

Favorite Shoe: New Balance Size: 12EE

Age: 60.5 years old

Marital Status: Married

Family members:
Wife- Kathy Farrell

What I do for work:
District 11 School Teacher

Places I’ve called home and why I like where I am now:
Ohio, Arizona, Texas.
I took up running in the mountains around Tucson. The easy
access to the mountains around the Springs drew me here from
a 3 year purgatory in Texas.

What does running mean to me:
Its a way to get my head together. I think
better when my pulse is elevated.

Running accomplishments: View my Pikes Peak Ascent/Marathon results
Over the last 21 years I have run events of marathon or
longer 102 times. I'm never fast but I am pretty consistent.

Favorite trail/mountain race and why:
Old Pueblo 50 mile. Its about the right size and gets sufficiently into the back country in a single big loop.
Also I have many long time running friends in Tucson and
this race gives me a chance to visit with them.

Best running experience:
Chasing Thanh and David and Torry around
our Sand Creek H.S. Math class trying to
get them to sit in their seats.

Something non running related that no one would guess about me:
I once took a year out of my career to ride my bicycle
around the world. I traveled 10850 miles through 22
countries in 10 months.
