I am fortunate that my parents both live here, always an inspiration for me to strive for health and happiness.
What I do for work:
I work in equipment engineering at Vitesse Semiconductor.
Places Ive called home and why I like where I am now:
When I started running and what got me started:
I never have been much of a runner, certainly not compared to most of the people in this group, I ran track in high school and ran off and on since. I race mountain bikes and enjoy trail running as cross training.
What does running mean to me:
I enjoy the tranquility that it provides me. for a brief time all my cares can be replaced with the appreciation of actually being able to run and the nature surrounding me.

as most of my experience is with mountain bikes I don't have too many running accomplishments, however one that will always stick with me will be the mount Elbert snowshoe ascent. it is a race starting in Leadville, summits mt. Elbert and finishes back in Leadville and is run in march. snowshoes don't help much plowing through a blizzard in waist deep powder. like most races of this type it was absolutely horrible at the time but so much fun now!
What I like about trail/mountain running:
I like watching the wildlife scurry for cover as they hear me gasping for air trying to keep up with the club.
Neatest thing found on a run:
I wasn't running but thought this poignant anyway. I was pushing my mountain bike along with a flat tire miles away from anywhere when I came across a brand new inner tube lying in the middle of the trail!
Running pet peeves:
dog poop hopping
Something non running related that no one would guess about me:
this one time...at band camp...
oh come on that was funny!
Other hobbies and interests:
rock climbing, ice climbing, mountain bikes, motocross.
I started running with the incline club just to try and push my performance on my mountain bike to another level. interestingly my greatest gain has been running with all the veteran racers and picking their brain on training and racing strategies. why reinvent the wheel. the knowledge base of this group is immense, ask around and refine your strategy.
