Age: 42.8 years old

Marital Status: Single

Family members:
3 crazy kiddos

What I do for work:
Army things

Places I’ve called home and why I like where I am now:
All over the place, but grew up near Cincy. I've also lived in NY, MO, TX, AL, VA, and thankfully CO. Colorado is definitely home for me--waking up to the mountains everyday motivates me to get outside and enjoy life!

When I started running and what got me started:
5th grade. I always loved being outside and running is so simple and pure that I stuck with it.

What does running mean to me:
A breath of fresh air...it's my coffee in the morning, my quiet time, my time with friends, cheap therapy

Running accomplishments: View my Pikes Peak Ascent/Marathon results
Just happy to stick with it even when it’s tough—through injuries, long days, competing priorities.

What I like about trail/mountain running:
Being out there away from civilization, but feeling like it's exactly where I'm supposed to be.

Favorite running trail and why:
Do I have to pick just one?? The Pikes Peak ultra loop--some of the best trails in the area all in one course. Also enjoy playing in the CO, UT, WY, MT, CA mountains. So many adventure options!

Other hobbies and interests:
Mountain biking, hiking, climbing, skiing, snowshoeing, good food and beer
