Primary Focus:


Favorite Run Location:

Rome. Waking up and running around an ancient city and doing laps around the Colosseum was hard to beat.

Desired Runner to Run With:

Micah True (Caballo Blanco). What a cool guy. I feel like we'd hit it off


My running friends, especially those crazy enough to wake up at 4AM and run with me. Every person I run with has a great career and some have wives/husbands and kids. And personality wise, they are just the greatest people.

Most Memorable Run:

This is bad. I was at a close friends graduation party the night before the Rock N Roll Chicago half. I celebrated a little too hard, and only managed to get an hour of sleep. The race started around 85 degrees and was around 95 when I finished. My head was killing me, but I still managed a 1:34 PR. It took me a few years to break that PR and to this day I still don't understand how I did it.
