When I started running and what got me started:
As long as I can remember I'd rather run than walk.

What does running mean to me:

What I like about trail/mountain running:
Freedom and the scenery.

Favorite running trail and why:
Barr Trail because of the challenge it presents.

Best running experience:
2007 Rescue Run 5K: snow drifts, packed ice and snow, I decided on using the Yak Trax, which was the right choice. Coming to the last quarter mile there was a group of us together and as soon as we turned the corner to the straight away to the finish line I hit my sprint and moved up to third place overall for my first top 3 finish just missing 2nd place by 1 second.

Worst running experience:
Being the anchor of our 4X800 relay team at the State Championships where we had a big lead and I got the baton and went out way too fast into a head wind and ended up running out of gas on the second lap and getting caught by two other people to place third.

Something non running related that no one would guess about me:
Won a Disco Dance competition in college.

Other hobbies and interests:
Mountain bike riding and racing.
Road bike riding and racing.
Track racing at the Velodrome.
