I'll race any distance on any terrain, but am focusing more on 50k+ these days.
Favorite Race Distance:
Nothing distills your soul quite like 100 miles.
Long-Term Running Goals:
Sub 2:30 in the marathon and top 10 at Western States.
Most Memorable PR:
My 18:37 at Western States was the highlight of my running career so far. It was the kind of day that embodies everything I like so much about running.
The Dipsea is my favorite race - the handicap, the trail, the rules - it's a race unlike any other. It got me back into running after getting cut from the cross country team in college.
Three pins on the race bib (4 is too heavy).
Most Memorable Run:
I was attempting to traverse the Milford Track in New Zealand in 1 day in order to get to the end in time for the last boat home. I had to really get after the 35 miles. One gnarly fall and a sprained LCL later, I ended up in the ranger station where a whole campground of folks offered me their leftover food!
Favorite Part of Being a DWRunner:
I like feeling like I'm part of a team again, it's a little bit like being back on cross country in high school!
