Long-Term Running Goals:

My main goal is just to stay healthy.  I was injured every year in my college career except for one.  I would like to reverse that trend and always stay injury-free.

Currently coming back from a long 9-month injury lay-off. I was able to start back up running again in December and have been building my fitness back ever since.


I am a family man.  I am married to my beautiful wife Amy (who also ran at Weber and is quite the runner).  We have three beautiful daughters named Evelyn (4 years old), Hannah (2 year old), and a new baby girl born in March, named Nora.

6.1 miles with Ken and Denver, avg pace 6:30/mile, two of which were marathon pace 5:19, 5:17. This was definitely the easiest this pace has felt all year, a walk in the park cardio-wise. It's all going to come down to the strength of my legs.

Going into Phoenix Marathon last year, a PR race for me, I had 14 runs of 15+ miles, 5 runs of 20+ miles, and 1 run of 25+. This cycle by comparison those numbers are 28/10/4. So I'm easily the most prepared I've ever been for a marathon. Time to cash that fitness in!
