Chief Running Officer


My Perfect Run: A long, tasty, single track trail deep inside the Chattahoochee National Forest with a couple of friends, my ultra-dogs, a big bag of peanuts, and a very cold microbrew waiting at the finish.
Originally From: Elkhart, IN
Best Advice: Sign up early for a goal race. It will save money on registration, make sure the race doesn’t sell out before I’m signed up, and it will keep me motivated and committed to train for the race.
What Keeps Me Going: My wife & kids.
