Running Accomplishments

2020 Bandera 100K. After DNFing at 50 miles during my first 100K attempt on a flat, local (and somewhat familiar), course a few years ago, I had unfinished business. Bandera was virtually everything my first 100K attempt wasn’t: hilly, rocky, unfamiliar (4 states away!). This race challenged virtually every aspect of me as a runner up to that point.

Favorite Part About Being a Runner

Being able to move as God created me. The community of runners. Simplicity.

Best Races
