Best Ultra Run Experience:

wasatch trail 9/00; the remoteness and beauty of the course. Also the extreme challenge and difficulty of the course [felt like I had accomplished something].

Weird Experience:

KY Ultra sojurn 3/00; a fun low key run that is totally on trails,lots of water crossings,minimal to no aid,and poorly marked. A lot of fun and a lot of good stories after the run.


Completing the Slam in 2000. I consider that one event because of the proximity of each run to the next one. Difficult for me because of the short recovery time between runs.


I love to run,the commaradiere,the beauty of the courses,the challenges they bring,and most of all the closeness I feel to God during many of my runs.

Why badwater:

After running in 4 races with Joe Decker this year and learning of the extreme difficulty of the race, the beauty of the course, and the wonderful people he met during the run; I want to experience it all to.

Other Exp.:

Completed a dozen Ironman distance races, including Hawaii 4 times, World's Toughest twice and Great Floridian 5 times and the old Cape Cod Ironman.
