About me

About me

We humans love to put labels on things. Just need to classify, categorize, arrange into neat piles. So rather than provide a write-up of who I am, which you can get here for my professional background, I’ll provide labels – hats, if you will – that I put on at various times. Here are just a few of my hats:

  • Husband
  • Father
  • Son
  • Professor
  • Teacher
  • Trail and Ultra Runner
  • Photographer
  • Mentor
  • Listener
  • Researcher
  • Writer
  • Technician
  • Backpacker
  • Friend
  • Confidant
  • Coach
  • Communicator
  • Analyst
  • Woodworker
  • Handyman
  • Ditch Digger

Ultrarunner: A person you don’t see on the weekends because they’re “running in the woods somewhere.”

You know you’re a runner when

… your first thought when you look at the weekly weather forecast is how it’s going to affect your runs.

… your calendar is planned around race dates.

… you see a sign on the highway telling how many miles to the next town and you think “I could run that.”
