Born and raised in Granville, Ohio but now a transplant to Washington state. I moved to Olympia in October 2010 for my job. I have been a runner for 25 years. I started running in middle school doing sprints in track and have progressively run longer distances since then. I
I've completed about 20 marathons (PR 3:01) and numerous ultra marathons, including 7 100 mile or above races. In the last year I've placed 2nd at the Hellgate 100k in Virginia, 3rd at the Umstead 100 in North Carolina in 17:47. I also placed 2nd at the Fat Dog 120 mile in British Columbia in 35:49. I like to run major races with competition and in the last 5 100's that I've run I've always placed in the top 5.
