What do you like to do in your spare time?
When did you begin to run?
Started running after college, mainly 5 and 10Ks.

My first ultra was the 2003 JFK 50 Miler . (The same year I turned fifty.)
What other friends or family have you inspired to run?
What is your favorite training run route?
I really don’t have one favorite training route as there are too many good trail runs in Gambrill to choose from. Perhaps my favorite run isn’t a “route” but an early morning trail run, in the fog with the Mountain Laurel in bloom.
How has running enhanced your life?
- Meeting a great group of people to train with.
- Stress relief
- And finally, I was about 210 – 220 pounds for my first JFK now I stay between 165 – 175 lbs.
