What You See Is What You Get

Asheville, Western NC, United States
Now residing back in the mountains of western NC where I was born. I've spent the past 12 years mountain bike racing with many amazing riders all the way from Miami to the midwest. Mountain biking then turned to an endurance endeavor for me in 2002, competing in 12/24 hour, & 100 mile races. I found endurance was my calling , then in 2009 was introduced to endurance running through an amazing group of people in WNC & have since went on to participate in many ultra running events. I feel like the people I ride & run along side in the endurance world tend to be well rounded & driven by the better things in life, purely because you cant fake or be superficial in this endurance world. Everything I do in my life is to allow me the time & energy to keep pursuing my passion of adventure in whatever form it comes. I was gifted life & the gift of an active life by my still inspiring mother Nancy, whom I lost in 1999 to suicide. I've learned through my adventures & losses to have a blast, don't take your self to seriously, & keep going because there is no finish line. This goes out to you mom.

Hardest Trail Marathon, Linville Madness!

One of the most beautiful trail marathons I've done, put together by Brandon Thrower.  The hardest organized trail marathon in the US right now, over 10,000 feet of climbing & nothing but beauty every foot. This video Brandon put together with an amazing Fleet Foxes soundtrack sums up the whole day. A unforgettable day with some amazing friends.
