Complete a 2nd 50 miler and earn UTMB points.

Qualify for UTMB Races and run the alps. 100 miler somewhere seems just insane enough to put it down.

Favorite Part About Being a Runner

Running can be ‘active’ meditation for me, especially when running on a single track trail, cold and muddier the better

Best Races

Sun Mountain and White River are two really great courses for beauty of the course and diversity of terrain type. Volcanic 50K is close second. Hard to beat Boston for road marathon, energy and a big ‘tent’ experience.

Running Words of Wisdom

Running fast is about fitness. Running far is about state of mind.
If you run today, you are guaranteed to be faster than everyone who didn’t.
