When I started running and what got me started:
In 2000, while living in Austin, TX (ie, flat!), I needed some way to stay in shape for backpacking. Turns out that running (on flat trails) prepares one's cardiovascular system nicely, but doesn't prepare one's legs for slogging weight up and down mountains.

What does running mean to me:
Exercise, time to think.

Running accomplishments: View my Pikes Peak Ascent/Marathon results
Running again after back injury.

What I like about trail/mountain running:
Getting closer to nature.

Favorite running trail and why:
Ute Valley Park -- it's the closest to my home and work. Makes for easy lunch-time runs, a great way to break up the work day.

Neatest thing found on a run:
That I enjoy running.

Running pet peeves:
Dog crap on trail.

Other hobbies and interests:
Photography, poker, video games, dancing.
