About Me

How It All Started...

I started chasing my running dreams after I completed my first marathon at age 14 growing up in Arizona.  I have always enjoyed challenging myself and finding that next adventure. After that first marathon, it seemed like a great idea to explore the ultra running world after I became aware of such races thanks to a few running friends at Baylor University. This led to my first trail race which was a 50 miler back in 1986.  It was a tough race for me and I DNF'ed after 30 miles. I decided to work on improving my training and nutrition and I entered the race again and finished.  The completion of that first ultra trail race encouraged me to pursue many more long distance road, trail and mountain races.  

I live, train and coach in HOUSTON, TX and have 48 years of running experience, 38 years of coaching experience and have completed over 100 Ultra Marathons.
