Current Goals

Getting back in shape, getting outside.

Long Term Goals

Run the bridge series this year, go for a full marathon early 2019. Then an ultra?

Running Accomplishments

Lots of 5ks, a couple halfs, a couple fulls and an Ironman.. that counts as running right?
I don’t run for time, so none are “fast”.

Favorite Part About Being a Runner

Being outside, forgetting about whatever thing I was working on. I get re-energized when I run.

Best Races

Favorites are Chicago 10 mile, Ragnar NW Passage, RnR Seattle and the marathon in Ironman Canada (the old course). My favorites not for best time but for the location and how awesome the races were.

Running Words of Wisdom

When you’re suffering (or think you are) – break it down and remember you can do anything for 10 minutes. Forget the time ahead of you beyond that for the moment. Often in 10 mins you will feel better.
