City: Colorado Springs State: CO

Favorite Shoe: New Balance Size: 11.5

Age: 54.5 years old

Marital Status: Single

What I do for work:
Researcher in the oil and gas industry

Places I’ve called home and why I like where I am now:
Heck, I've lived in Morgantown, WV (GO MOUNTAINEERS!), N. Myrtle Beach, SC, Tampa, Miami, Atlanta, Tempe, San Francisco, Oakland, Seattle, Bloomington, IN, and now Colorado Springs. I love being so close to the mountains and having trail running and mountain biking just minutes away. I fell in love with CS the first day I visited.

When I started running and what got me started:
I started running in high school. I began running because my high school basketball coach said "Isaack, start running or I'm going to whip you!" I began running immediately. :) Sometimes the memory of that coach still keeps me running.

What does running mean to me:
Running is another form of therapy. And God knows I need a lot of therapy. Plus, the price is right.

Running accomplishments:
I am strictly a middle-of-the-pack runner. I've competed in many 5ks, 10ks, a couple half marathons, and a marathon.

What I like about trail/mountain running:
Mountain running and trail running are new to me. I never trail/mountain ran before moving to Colorado Springs during the summer of 2007. It is such a kick to run with the views and snow and saying "hi" to people on the trails.

Favorite running trail and why:
Waldo Loop. This is the trail that I lost my trail running virginity on. My favorite direction is to take the loop counter clockwise.

Other hobbies and interests:
Mountain and road biking, swimming, and reading.

Other stuff:
My favorite books are The Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand and Catch 22 by Joseph Heller. My favorite author is Pat Conroy. I can live on nothing but chocolate and water for weeks.
