Hometown: Long Beach, CA
Background: Grew up playing water polo. My college polo coach in San Luis Obispo used to make us run a few mornings a week on the local JC cross country course -- way more fun than swimming!
Racing Competitively Since: I've been racing competitively since about 2006. But "competitively" from a runner's perspective since 2010.
5K: 14:58 (Encinitas 5K, 2012)
10K: 32:27 (Coronado 10K, 2012)
Half Marathon: 1:10:47 (San Diego Half Marathon, 2012)
The Fun Questions:
Favorite Race: Avenue of the Giants Marathon / Half Marathon (Eureka, CA)
Favorite Workout: Anything on a track is still new and exciting... But probably gotta go with anything over an hour and hard in the middle of nowhere.
Words to Live By: What would you attempt to do today if you knew you could not fail?
Why I Choose to Run for PRT: My wife talked me into joining a local team... One of the better decisions of my adult life... Great group, good times and a supportive environment.
What I Like to Do Besides Running: Camping, road trips, cooking, mountain biking, breakfast with my wife.
