New to the Rock/Creek Race Team for 2010-
Occupation: Boiler Technician (McKee Foods)
I have always been into health and fitness most of my life, I enjoy all sports and I have been a bowler most of my life. I enjoy the feeling you get from working out and being fit. I have always been a runner throughout the years but not a serious runner, I would train for a Marathon and run it and then get into something else. I got into bodybuilding for a long time and really enjoyed it but I would still want to run all the time, so I gave up bodybuilding and started running, I started out with short runs and got back into the marathons. In 2003 I started running on trails and I just knew this was my passion.
Years Running: 12 years
Favorite Trail Race: Chattanooga Mountains Stage Race
Favorite Training Trail: Raccoon Mountain its fast, rolling and you can run different distances in the same loop.

Lifelong Running Goals:
I have always wanted to do the hardest craziest runs out there, I want to travel to other countries and run in some long stage races or run across the desert. My number one goal is to stay healthy and run as long as I can. I also want to help other people get started because getting started is the hardest part.
