RunRevel Wasatch LE Marathon 2021
San Francisco Marathon 2017
What is your favorite race distance and why?
I enjoy both the half and full marathon distances. The half because I can push it for speed and the full because I can go for a BQ!
Do you have any running superstitions or rituals?
No, just a specific routine that starts about three hours before race start.
What is your favorite race and why?
Boston Marathon! I read this book back in high school by James Fixx called The Complete Book of Running. It talked about the great runners of the day including Bill Rodgers (who i’ve met personally since). It also described Boston, the history, and as a teenaged boy I was excited that the college girls of Welsley would be out there cheering us on. When I finally ran Boston, you could hear them screaming from a half-mile out!
What is your perfect dream race?
Boston 2015. It was a perfect marathon race for me that day. Everything just clicked. The best part was seeing my family there cheering me on as I turned the corner onto Boylston St. Just thinking about it gets me emotional.
Do you have an embarrassing race moment?
What's your most proud running moment?
The first time I ran Boston in 2010.
What do you like to do when you're not running?
Spending time with family and volunteering as a Scout leader!
What's your favorite post-race drink?
Protein shake (although having a beer is nice too).
