What I like about trail/mountain running:
The adventure. The scenery! The people. Seeing views Iíd never get to see otherwise.
Favorite running trail and why:
Kind of impossible to say in reality. Iíll go Bluffline trail, at least the first section, on Monte Sano in Huntsville Alabama. (Hometown). Very technical but still runnable downhill section. Not for people who donít downhill well but when Iím on point and hit it right itís amazing and everything I love about trail running.
Favorite trail/mountain race and why:
Iíll go with Grand Viduta Stage Race in Huntsville Alabama. Not very long or super hard but so much fun. We joke that itís our summer camp. Such a fun weekend.
Best running experience:
Finishing Pinhoti 100 in 2016. Had had a bad experience at Zion early in the year but got to do this race with an amazing group of friends as my crew and pacers along with seeing numerous other friends eith running the race crewing for others or working aid stations.
Worst running experience:
Zion 100. Even though it counts as a finish, it was a bad experience.

Not sure I have a good story for this. Saw a kids spider man costume hanging in a tree in the woods, just after Halloween this year. That was weird
