What my deal is, and why you should (or shouldn’t) care:
I am a professional runner based in Eugene, Oregon, but I spend a lot of time traveling the world for training and racing. In the last 15 years, I’ve competed among the top in high school, (Go Cowboys!) college (Go Cardinal!), and pro track and field. I’ve stood atop the podium feeling invincible, but I’ve also shed my fair share of tears over missed opportunities – learning a little more each step of the way.
My goal in creating this site is to help us runner people – including myself – become the athletes we want to be by sharing knowledge, inspiration and experience. If you have any ideas that can help achieve these goals, leave them on the suggestions page (along with any other comments, problems or compliments).
Get some “Dear Abby” style advice on the “Ask” page. Watch me bumble my way through the 2011 season while you bumble your way through yours by following my “Journal” page. Ask! Contribute! Share your war stories! Help make this website useful. Imagine the obstacles we can avoid when we do what runners do best: help each other out.
Thanks for visiting, and hope to see you a bunch,
