Hometown: Born in Anaheim, CA, lived in Encinitas, CA since 1978

Background: I was a recreational runner until my late 50’s at which point I got serious about improving my speed. Being goal oriented, I started focusing on setting a new PR each year at the Carlsbad 5000 which I have managed to achieve so far.

Competitive running began with the 2015 Dirt Dog XC series.

Masters PRs:

5K: 18:53 (Carlsbad 5000, 2016, age 58) 

10K: 39:56 (Scripps Ranch Old Pros 10K, 2015, age 57)


The Fun Questions:

Favorite Race: Carlsbad 5000

Favorite Workout: PRT Sunday long run

Words to live by: “A man who can laugh at himself is truly blessed, for he will never lack for amusement”

Why I Choose to Run for PRT: I appreciate the support and encouragement that PRT team members offer to each other.

What I Like to Do Besides running: Hiking, surfing and watching sports
