About Me

I am an ultra runner from Pennsylvania since 2006. My first ultra was the Blues Cruise 50k in 2006 and my first 100 mile race was in 2007 - MMT 100. I have now run over 40+ ultras. I also take photos at some running races throughout the year and post them here: FunWithPhotos

2015 HAT Run 50k

My 9th HAT Run 50k – snow, mud, numb feet and sun at the finish. Definitely a challenging day. 2nd place 4:25:35 a little slower than last year but I think that had something to do with the miles of slippery mud;-) Very happy with my effort and definitely left it all out there like […]
