About my blog

Welcome to my trail running site. I enjoy being on the trail where I can take in nature and clear my mind. I prefer running in the mountains, but anywhere rural will do. I have completed four 100 mile trail races and many other ultramarathons. I'm a member of Team Red, White and Blue. "Enriching the lives of America's veterans."

My Year in Review 2012

(Click for a slideshow of my favorite pictures)

I rung in 2012 with a New Years Eve run and plan to finish it with the 2nd annual Run El Paso Club New Years Eve event along Scenic dr. What a better way to start and end the year. This was a very exciting year for me, so here is a slide show of some of my favorite pictures from my running adventures.

Having previously been injured, I began 2012 with some short runs and then built up my mileage as the year went along. In February I ran the El Paso half marathon and then trained some more to finish the Bataan Memorial Death March full marathon a month later.

McDowell Mountain Frenzy 50 Mile Race Report

“The last two miles [of the peak] are extremely steep, as the road builders decided to charge directly up the mountain rather than bother with those wimpy switch-backs...It is so steep that if you tumbled, you'd probably keep rolling until you ended up in someone's front yard in Fountain Hills.” –Ksorenson  (Hikearizona.com)
