Favorite Shoe: New Balance MT100 Size: 11.5

Age: 35.6 years old

Marital Status: Married

Family members:
Wife - Julie

What I do for work:
Work for Time Warner Cable, doing process type things for advanced tech support.

When I started running and what got me started:
Starting running in '04 because of peer pressure! Then took a break to hike mountains frequently, and came back in '09. The PPRR Winter Series was the first real running I had done, and it was a blast.

Running accomplishments: View my Pikes Peak Ascent/Marathon results
My list is getting longer! I just set a super PR at 22:40 for the 5k in Texas, only three years ago I was barely under 40. I finished the Ascent in 2010 at just over 5 hours, and my goal this coming year is to go under 4.

What I like about trail/mountain running:
Solitude, the endurance it takes to find some really neat stuff. I also enjoy finding new trails and seeing new places that I haven't been before.

Favorite running trail and why:
My favorite right now is the Ute Pass trail, mainly because it is not very heavily populated (except on Sundays!) and there are some great trails that can take me up most of the pass.

Favorite trail/mountain race and why:
The Greenland Trail race was excellent, well organized and a great trail to run on. The weather is typically cool, but nice also.

Best running experience:
Finishing the Ascent this last year. I told my wife I had never hurt so much and been so happy in my life.

Worst running experience:
I missed the cut off of the Barr Trail Mountain Race by about 1 minute in '09, and that became the driving force of training for the next year. Totally worked, finished under 3 hours the next year.

Neatest thing found on a run:
Mostly karma related stuff, like quiet, solitude and relaxation.
