Running accomplishments: View my Pikes Peak Ascent/Marathon results

Favorite running trail and why:
Every one I've ever been on.

Best running experience:
Garden of the Gods: After midnight in Jan-Feb with a full moon and a blanket of snow on the ground. I came in through the Dakota trail on to Balanced Rock and back by the trading post. There were deer and bighorn and foxes out with me. The full moon off of the snow afforded enough light to see everything, including a crystal clear view of The Peak.

Worst running experience:
Same night, it was bitterly cold. My fingers and toes were numb for several days after.

Neatest thing found on a run:
The gal that became my wife.

Something non running related that no one would guess about me:
I can eat my weight in buffalo wings. The more heat, grease, and beer, the better.

Fly-fishing
