History:

Running brings us closer to our natural and ancestral selves – it is one of the simplest, most effective and succinct forms of meditation.  I run first for mental and spiritual health followed by physical health, camaraderie and finally competition with myself and others. Running helped save me from a life of addiction and mental illness and is a big part of my life BUT it is not the whole of my being and is not the sole definer of  who I am – running at its best is simply a joyful expression of our humanity.

Body conscious and highly energetic from a young age I started running at the age of 11 but it did not fully take hold as an activity that I loved until I was 15.  After about a year and a half of consistent training I ran my first marathon (Twin Cities) in 1996 at the age of 16 finishing just under four hours. After finishing 12 marathons and a couple of hundred long runs over the next 7 years I attempted my first ultramarathon / 50KM trail race in the Spring of 2004 at Trail Mix.  Although I had trained well and had a solid endurance base I paced very poorly at that first ultra race, had a mental lapse and DNF’d.  Two months later I attempted my next 50K trail race at Afton, completing 28 miles but inadvertently going off / cutting the course somewhere along the way, resulting in another DNF.  Through the Summer of 2004 I trained very hard running several training runs between 30 and 45 miles and that Fall I returned to the roads to attempt the historic Edmund Fitzgerald 100KM which I completed.  Since then I have gone on to run races ranging in distance from 1 mile to 350 miles.  Having completed over 100 marathons and ultras I have also run in excess of 26.2 miles another couple of hundred times during training and non-race adventures with lifetime mileage in the neighborhood of 50,000 miles or the equivalent of two times around the earth.
