Just being outside and enjoying the day.

The Pikes Peak Marathon. Provides motivation for an entire year of training.
Best running experience:
My 2008 PPM! I finally broke nine hours with a PR up and down.

Running related bathroom stop story:
It's not a question of IF, just a matter of WHEN.
Running pet peeves:
Stepping on a itty bitty rock in the middle of a flat, smooth trail that you hit just right with your heel that you roll your ankle. I've done that twice on training runs but I didn't do it once during my PPM. Go figure.
Other hobbies and interests:
Bagging 14'ers and golf.
