City: Colorado Springs State: CO
Favorite Shoe: Pegasus or Skylon Size: 8.5
Age: 42.5 years old
Marital Status: Married
Christie (fell in love with running to get ready to walk across England), Evie (trying to figure out where everyone is going to and coming from in such a hurry) and Anya (would rather bark at the deer for excercise).
What I do for work:
Watch the Stock Market go up, then down, then up...you get the idea. Manager for a financial call center in COS.
Places Ive called home and why I like where I am now:
Pretty much COS, but I use to live on the East Side and now live in the Southwest and love the access to the trails via Bear Creek and Stratton Open Space.
When I started running and what got me started:
about 6 years ago in prep to walk across England. Seemed like fun so I kept it up.
What does running mean to me:
Stress reliever, day in and day out challenge.
I have gotten faster over the last five years and completed BTMR twice, what else is there?
What I like about trail/mountain running:
The solitude and challenge of running on a 12 inch path while dodging stuff, listening the wild life and trying to decide how much oxygen the body really needs to survive.
Favorite running trail and why:
Barr trail is good for the challenge, Stratton open space to Gold Camp and down through the neighborhoods is great for a shorter run and the trails in GoG when I feel like seeing a phenominal sunrise/sunset.
Favorite trail/mountain race and why:
BTMR - I don't feel like I have the time to train for a full marathon and if I am going to run up a hill I had better be allowed to run down it (that is the fun part).
Best running experience:
2007 Denver Marathon Relay - good race with friends even though it rained the entire time.
Worst running experience:
Do calf cramps coming down Barr trail count?
Neatest thing found on a run:
Running pet peeves:
people running on the edge of trails to avoid mud. It eventually makes the trail so big it becomes a road. It is trail running carrying some mud will make you stronger.
Something non running related that no one would guess about me:
My age, the hairline is very misleading.
Other hobbies and interests:
