The love of my life, soulmate and wife Amanda ... lest we not forget Pugsy, the master of all that is good also ... and my wonderful kids Lauryn and Logan.

What I do for work:
As little as possible ... but do it well!

Places I’ve called home and why I like where I am now:
Places I have called home ... Nebraska, Craig Colorado, Grand Junction and now Colorado Springs. I love it here, all the beautiful area and things to do ...

When I started running and what got me started:
November of 2004 ... I needed a change, and life needed a boost!

What does running mean to me:
Running is freedom to me ... being on a trail is the best ... it is you against you, and no one can stop that ... it is the release valve to all that the world piles on.

Running accomplishments:
My best 10K time at the Boulder Boulder 2005
My first 1/2 Marathon in 2006 and my latest 1/2 in Moab
So many 5k and 10k's inbetween ... every event is an accomplishment in one way or another!

What I like about trail/mountain running:
I like the different running feel of the trails ... up and down, steep then flat ... such a good mix, always keeps you guessing.

Favorite running trail and why:
Barr Trail, The Garden, Waldo Canyon, or Section 16 ... they all just push me in a really good way everytime I hit them.

Favorite trail/mountain race and why:
Have not done one yet.

Best running experience:
The Moab Other Half ... it is to date my best 1/2 Mararthon time, and it just felt good.

Worst running experience:
Nothing I would call worst to this point ... lucky me.

Neatest thing found on a run:
Myself ... who would have thought!

Running related bathroom stop story:
Let's just say ... no porta-potty in site, so the wooded creek area had to do ... with a leaf ...

Running pet peeves:
Those who think that speed is all that running is about ... and make everything a speed competition ... you have to enjoy the ride to a point.

Something non running related that no one would guess about me:
I am very shy.

Other hobbies and interests:
My #1 Hobby is Amanda ... after that Pugsy, NIN, Husker Football and Movies/Music

Other stuff:
Live Fast, and Die Fast Too ... you never know when the ride will end.
