About Me

Ran CC a long time ago when it was just getting traction in the state (Sr year). Ran track Sr and Jr year. Carried it all forward running lifelong including 7 Marathons until a knee injury interrupted all the fun! On the very positive side, I've also strength trained all my life and have been able to pass on some of this knowledge to some CC runners that are making their own mark in their own time.
