Short-Term Running Goals:

Keep running. I was recently diagnosed with Temporal Lobe Epilepsy, so my new goal is to not have any seizures, and keep running. Since my last seizure in Jan 2018 I haven't been able to run more than 6 miles at once. Hoping the mileage can come back, but future races are out as I don't know what each day will bring. But I'm not dead and don't have a terminal disease, and for that I count my blessings.

Long-Term Running Goals:

Not get super fat, and run another marathon or ultra sometime soon.


Started running seriously in March 2010. Married 21 years to a hot momma and we have 3 boys, 1 sweet girl, 2 dogs, 3 2 0 1 cat, and 6     4 5 6 3 5 3 chickens (animals have a short life expectency in the country). I currently lead our church congregation and I feel blessed for the opportunity, and in May 2017 I joined our local School Board as a Trustee for a 3 year term. My day job is Learning Architect for a regional bank in MT, WY, SD, OR, ID, and WA.

Total Distance

6 miles! It was 20-25F out, so no worries about total cold, but still brought the gear and needed it into the wind, but was very warm with wind at my back. Glad to go so far, even though it wasn’t far for me.
