What I do for work:

Places Ive called home and why I like where I am now:
Louisiana, Texas. Florida, New York. I never thought that I would fall in love with a terrain feature until I came to Colorado. Will never call anywhere else, "Home".
When I started running and what got me started:
I never really enjoyed running until I discovered mountain trail running in 2008. The US Army stationed me here back then and I've been hooked every since.
What does running mean to me:
When I'm not running, I'm thinking about running.
I love the beauty of running in the mountains and the peacefulness (no cars). Also, I really enjoy climbing. I feel like anyone can run on the flats. Climbing, for me, is like a one-on-one boxing match, and I love to win.

In 2014 I ran a marathon in the deserts of Kuwait wearing my Army uniform with boots and a 35lb. pack. It was an actual organized marathon commemorating the Batan Death March during WWII. My time was 6:26:58 and I of course saved it in my running app.
Favorite running trail and why:
Garden of the Gods because it's 3 miles from my house.
Favorite trail/mountain race and why:
Pikes Peak Marathon because I haven't run it yet.
