What is your favorite vacation spot: Anywhere in the high alpine.

If you had a warning label, what would yours say: Oh – lots of warning labels: Don’t talk to me in the morning before coffee. Don’t leave cabinet doors open or extended periods of time. Don’t keep me up past 10pm.

What’s your favorite way to unwind: Coming home after a long run and laying on the floor and staring at the ceiling for 15 minutes.

What causes are you passionate about: I’m not entirely sure if it’s a cause, but I’m big into learning, striving for what’s next, and humility. More into listening than talking.

What’s something we would never guess about you:  I’m tall – so sometimes it’s hard to see, but I’m definitely balding a bit. Next time I tie my shoes, you’ll see it.

What is your favorite running trail: Bolinas Ridge!

What is your favorite race: That I’ve done? I’ll go with the Moab Trail Marathon. It’s runnable and very tough. Great competition. Last year I narrowly lost to Adam Peterman. It was a close one 😉

What advice would you give to a new ultra runner: I’ve never been in any position to give advice 🙂

Any races on your bucket list: Many. Ultra Trail Cape Town, Backcountry Rise, Chukanut, Way to Cool (still haven’t done it!), Javailna, JFK, and probably many more.
