Running Accomplishments:

St George Marathon 2008 = 3:05

Boston Marathon 2009 = 3:07

Seattle Rock and Roll Marathon 2010 = 3:07 (in Five Fingers Bikilas)

Ran 30 miles on my 30th birthday (Feb 7 2010)

Short-Term Running Goals:

Break 3 hours in the marathon

Run a trail ultra

 Find a way to run high mileage without injuring myself. My current theory is that transitioning out of my super-cushioned shoes into more minimalist shoes or bare feet will help improve my form and make this possible.

Long-Term Running Goals:

Run a 100 mile race.


I am happily married to Jenni. We have three energetic little boys who also enjoy to run. Jenni and I are both going to try learning how to run without shoes this year.

My 295's came, and I was super excited to try them out. I didn't have time until about 8:30 after the kids were in bed, but I headed out for a little 3 mile jog around the neighborhood.

Today was truly a stellar running day. I wanted to go do some distance on trails, but decided it would be unwise to head off too far into the woods by myself. So I did 1 hour on a rolling single track that was BEAUTIFUL! Then I headed down into town and ran on the roads for two more hours where I had cell phone reception in case anything went wrong. By this point I was feeling like my feet needed liberating, so I ran back to my car and ditched the shoes. I ran for another hour barefoot on the sidewalks around town and loved every minute of it. I'm not sure exactly how many miles I did, but it was four solid hours of running, and it felt great.
