Current Running

I run just enough to keep up with some of the high school kids that I help coach at Maddock HS today.

Most Memorable Race:

Too many good times to recall.   I do feel fortunate that I was a part of what I would refer to as North Dakota's version of the Running Boom in the 1980's, and the great competition with my rivals:  Arnie Falk, Brad Braunberger, Jim Stage, Mike Just, Tim Francis, Jeff Dick, Joel Rovang and all the other great runners of the 1980's.  Thanks for the memories!

Favorite Workout

6 x 1 mile intervals.

Favorite Place to Run

Garden of the Gods.   In ND, I enjoy running along the Missouri River when in Bismarck.

Other Activities

I don't think I should go there!
