Previously from: New Hampshire- the Granite State- Live Free or Die
Personal Motto/Inspiration: Time to toughen up
How long have you been a runner? Been running since track in junior high. I like long trail runs because I really enjoy long drawn out suffering, and I like the scenery. I started doing ultras because I really like big belt buckles.
Happiest running moment: Getting my first 100 miler belt buckle was pretty cool (WS100, 2011)
Proudest running accomplishment: Helping a good friend turn around a poor start at the Leadville 100 in 2012 while pacing him over Hope.
Favorite local running route: High Lonesome Loop from Hessie
Favorite distance: 50M
Favorite race: Rattlesnake Ramble
If you could lace up your shoes and go for a run anywhere in the world right now, where would you go? The Dolomites are really sweet
Goals: Break 17 minutes up Sanitas.
Uphills or Downhills? I like to hike uphills briskly and bomb downhills kamikaze style
Favorite post-run beer: anything dark, porters and stouts. Black Butte Porter from the Deschutes Brewery is awesome.

I am a Rocky Mountain Runner because… it’s fun to run with a group once in a while!
