Location Birmingham, Alabama, United States
Introduction I was an average miler in high school who never stopped running. At the age of 30 I started road racing. After 35 years of running countless 5K and 10Ks and something over 30 marathons. I never kept records of how many races I ran but I was totally burned out on road running so I started riding bikes. Since I was running and biking, I decided to figure out how to swim more than 25 yards and enter a triathlons. That was actually fun. Then in 2006 my wife, Marye Jo, and I ran the Imogene (Ouray to Telluride) Pass Run in Colorado and I was forever hooked on trail running. Since then I have entered ninen 100 mile races and finished six including The Leadville 100 in 2009, The Tahoe Rim Trail 100 in 2011, the and the Gringstone 100 in 2012 . After 5 years I get in the Hardrock 100 in July of 2014 but was only able to complete 71 miles but the experience was worth all the effort. "Next Time!"
Interests Ultra trail running, Triathlons, Creating and putting on Trail Races. Operating Southeastern Trail Runs, Doing volunteer trail maintenance at Oak Mountain State Park, Red Mtn Park and Ruffner Mtn Park, and getting to know so many amazing trail runners through our races.
Favorite Movies I would really like to try Forest Gump's Run. There is a "Race Across America" but it doesn't sound like fun.
Favorite Music About anything other than Country
Favorite Books Born to Run, (Imagine that, ) Grant, John Adams, Steve Jobs, For Those I Loved, basically History, No Fiction!

Why do the eyes of the tiny spiders along trails at night strobe when hit by the light of an LED headlamp? I know it is something to do with the oscillations of the LED light but it is really strange.
