I have been a competitive athlete all my life, but I didn’t start running until 12 years ago. I began to train for and participate in Ultra Marathons about 5 years ago. A recent injury to my left ankle caused deep vein thrombosis in both legs and bilateral pulmonary emboli in my lungs, resulting in nearly a year of rehab and recovery before I was able to return to running. I decided to take this second chance to refocus my training and to live life to its fullest by exploring new places through the most challenging terrain possible. This has already led to numerous PRs along with some awesome adventures in some amazing places.
I’ve completed nearly 50 ultramarathons over the last 5 years with distances ranging from 50K to 100 miles.
