In their own words...

Running achievement I am most proud of: My USATF 100K masters title, USATF Masters Ultrarunner of the Year award, being a member of the USATF ultra teams and wearing the USATF uniform at world 100K championships, and my Leadville Trail 100 accomplishments.

Why I run: Because I can and it intrigued me to see how deep I could go within myself to reach an ultrarunning goal.

Future Goals:  Learn how to gracefully manage my retirement from competitive running.

Favorite quote:  Ultrarunning is a sport where so many ordinary people do extraordinary things and take them for granted. Eric Clifton

Additional comments/thoughts:  I was pleased to have been able to contribute to the development of ultrarunning within USATF during my 11-year term on the Mountain/Ultra/Trail Running Council and its predecessors.
