"It never got wierd enough for me."-HST

City: Fountain State: CO

Favorite Shoe: timberland camp shoe Size: 9.5

Age: 33.9 years old

Marital Status: single and lovin it

Family members:
I have many.

What I do for work:
I assist in the managment of a small, yet extremely busy, Deli.

Places I’ve called home and why I like where I am now:
TX (The Panhandle): flat and windy farm land, containing minimal amounts of trees and clean water. CO: I LOVE CO. I love the mountains for one. Just peering out at the horizon provides me with motivation and a sense of encouragment. Camping skiing longboarding camping hiking trail running... enough verbs? The people populating this area are seemingly in way better physical condtion as well.

When I started running and what got me started:
I started running (like really running) around 2002. I was in school at the time, participating in long distance track events. In off season I trained with the cross country team.

What does running mean to me:
Its a way to shed. Shedding: toxins, anxiety, laziness, boredom. Its also a way to improve and better my health, and my motivation.

Running accomplishments:
Well although I do accomplish something with every run. At this point I cannot pinpoint anything that particularily stands out.

What I like about trail/mountain running:
The wilderness. I love being out and away from the stresses of the modern world. Running along a beautiful mountain trail promotes a true sense of joy, astonishment, and a seperation from the things that bring me down.

Favorite running trail and why:
Barr. It is the cherry ontop of the Incline cake. The Barr trail contains quite the view and many places to stop to enjoy the nature around you. On top of all that, its not but 30 min away.

Favorite trail/mountain race and why:
Not participated as of yet.

Best running experience:
Probably off season cross country. As to why, well, running 5 miles everyday at a time that I was a very fit, but an overall unhealthy person, really put a drive in me to become healthy. Also it showed me that I have what it takes "to make it". All I have to do is let myself.

Worst running experience:
Although bad running expiriences surely do exist I try and take the good out of every run.

Neatest thing found on a run:

Running related bathroom stop story:
Running while needing to "go" can provide large amounts of motivation.

Running pet peeves:
Loosing control of my breathing.

Something non running related that no one would guess about me:
I'm a freak. Lol.

Other hobbies and interests:
Reading, longboarding, walking, jogging, camping, relaxing, drinking, creating and listening to music.

Other stuff:
Hunter Thompson, Thomas Jefferson, Mark Twain- people whom I look up to. Vegetables, fruits, grains, and on the occasion farm raised protiens.-things I like to eat.
