    I’ve decided that this year I will attempt some longer races than I have been running.  For several years now I have been racing distances around 50 kilometers.

    September 16, 2017 Xterra Pan Am Championship, 4th place. People either say, “thats a great result!” or “oh really, what happened?” I never know what people are going to say and I never know how to respond.
