Best Ultra Run Experience:

My best Ultra running experience occured during the Coyote Four Play (2-25-99), I was inspired by the event. The course was tough, but having to rush to the motel, shower, drive to dinner, eat, drive back to the room, tape feet, prepare equipment and try to sleep was really a great experience. I didn't know how much fun an Ultra event could be until Chris Scott and the JABOY's put the C4P together.

Weird Experience:

Most non ultra running people would say that running an Ultra is pretty weird. I haven't had a weird ultra yet, but I'm looking forward to my first one.


Angeles Crest 100 Mile Endurance Run, 9-25-99. It's a 100 miles.


To challenge my soul.

Why badwater:

I live in Ridgecrest, located in the Indian Wells Valley a couple valley's west of Death Valley. I would like to race Badwater because seeing the run for the first time while crewing and pacing for Michael Styllas inspired me and I would like to see if my soul is up for the challenge.
