|Running the Desert Rats Kokopelli 150 Race (2017)|
I'm here to answer the tough trail running questions like "What makes ultra runners so crazy?" Or "Why not run 200 miles in the mountains tomorrow?" Or "How can I challenge and inspire athletes next as a race director?" And "How can I stay upside down longer during power vinyasa class?" When I'm not running, writing or causing trouble, I work as a race director organizing and executing a trail race marathon/half marathon series in Washington State as well as the first single loop 200 mile trail race in the USA, the Tahoe 200, and the Bigfoot 200 mile/ 100k races, point-to-point trail races in the Cascade Mountains. I just created a 234 mile race that will debut in October, the Moab 200 Endurance Run. I own Destination Trail, LLC, a company that organizes some of the most scenic, challenging and, well, LONG trail races in the USA. I'm also a student of power vinyasa yoga. I like to see the world upside down and I hope my blog helps you see it that way too.
I run for Ultimate Direction and Altra.
