In their own words...

Running achievement I am most proud of: Maintaining a race a weekend schedule since January of 2003 with a nearly 50% overall win average (57 wins in 118 races as of 3/19/05).

Why I run: I run because it makes me feel good. I especially love exploring on the run.

Future Goals: I'd like to run another 50+ races in 2005 and win more races than most people do.

Additional comments/thoughts: The more you do, the more you can do. Best results in snowshoeing. Trail running is my favorite, especially downhill over wild terrain. Prefer races longer than 10K but shorter than 20 miles, but willing to try anything. Perseverance is my ultimate specialty.
