Who's your daddy?
I'm not interested in what's behind me...
City: MNA2 State: CO
Favorite Shoe: Mountaineering Boot Size: 12
Age: 46.9 years old
Marital Status: Married
I've got a posse of three kids living in my house. I may have others kids in this world that are mine...that I'm not aware of.
What I do for work:
Real Estate Investor/Slum-Lord
Places Ive called home and why I like where I am now:
I was born on the east coast, moved 25 times, then landed in Boulder for college. I'm now in MNA2 and plan to be buried there.
When I started running and what got me started:
I started running when I got married, then got faster when I had kids. My fastest time yet is when the IRS called me for an audit :)
What does running mean to me:
I really don't like to run...but I love the mountains. I used to live in the flatlands and pretty much never ran. Now, living in MNA2, I love to hit the trails. To me, it means peace of mind. If you can't be happy with yourself...God help everybody around you.

Still married, still have my kids, and the IRS hasn't thrown me in jail.
What I like about trail/mountain running:
I can't think of a better way to get in shape - running in the Rocky Mountains.
Favorite running trail and why:
I really like Barr trail. A perfect run would be to cruise to Barr Camp Sunday evening when no one else is on the trail, eat some left over cookies that Neal hasn't snatched yet, then let gravity bring me home.
Favorite trail/mountain race and why:
Imogene Pass is the best - talk about some serious scenery. It's a race where people party hard before and after. Some during. Ouray rules - so does Telluride, but damn its expensive there! The Vail Hill Climb is second.
Best running experience:
During the summer of 05', I was chugging along a trail near my house & damn near ran into the ass of a big ass black bear. My pace afterwards was a bit faster.
Worst running experience:
I'm going with the winter 06' run with the IC (Sunday). We did the Rampart Range/Williams Canyon route. The winds were at least 45 mph, which picked up all the dirt/rock on the road and sand blasted us. I ate about 5 lbs of rock that day.
Neatest thing found on a run:
Running related bathroom stop story:
One training day, after over hydrating my system beyond comprehension, I found myself 1.5 miles from the top of the Peak. The urge was overwhelming and so the challenge was set. Could I arc it from a boulder on one side of the trail to the other side of the trail, where a harmless marmot was staring at me. Game on! I couldn't have been more impressed with the shear power of display, until a women my moms age approached the scene. She had no appreciation for this awe inspiring event, so I had to shut the system down, which aint easy.
Running pet peeves:
A haughty spirit on or off the trail.
Something non running related that no one would guess about me:
I'm a smart guy :)
Other hobbies and interests:
Biking, working out, climbing 14ers, backpacking.
