Age: 47.3 years old

Pedro (perro fr. Guanajuato)
What I do for work:
Putting the bad guys where they belong...and we've got plenty of work.
Places Ive called home and why I like where I am now:
Tucson, AZ; Washington, DC; Albuquerque, NM
ABQ's close enough to Colorado to hit PP on a weekend, but the Mexican food is SOOOO much better. Plus I don't have that mountain staring me down the rest of the week.
When I started running and what got me started:
Got bullied into it (my first half in '08) by my "best friend."
View my Pikes Peak Ascent/Marathon results
7 official 1/2 marathons, 1 PPA ('10), 2 full (San Antone RnR in '08, Marine Corps in '10); in a fit of delirium, signed up for the '12 PPM. Finished it in a fit of delirium, too.
What I like about trail/mountain running:
Don't have to worry about cars, much fewer bikes, and thank goodness it ain't laps.
Favorite running trail and why:
Waldo Canyon (RIP); loved the scenery & terrain and it never beat me up the way its neighbor trails have (I'm looking at you, Barr Trail and Incline).
Favorite trail/mountain race and why:
PPM for the sheer accomplishment, but Valles Caldera 1/2 is pretty gorgeous in it's own right.
Best running experience:
Finally finished a race ahead of the friend that got me started in all this foolishness...
Worst running experience:
...after which he said it wouldn't happen again. Two races later, he's keeping his word so far.
Neatest thing found on a run:
Found that same "best friend" near the bottom of the W's and we finished the PPM together.
Running pet peeves:
Dog owners that can't be bothered to clean up & cyclists that refuse to announce their passing.
