What was your first obstacle race and why did you do it?
Spartan Dallas Beast in 2014. One of my best friends talked me into it. We signed up for the elite wave and about 4 miles into the race I was hooked.
What drives you to compete?
I LOVE physical and mental challenges. The harder, longer, crazier the race, the more I want to do it. There is something inside of me that yearns to push the limits of what is physically possible, and as a masters athlete now, I feel like I need to push even harder to show people that you can get faster, stronger, and go further well after you hit 40.
If you could run an obstacle race anywhere in the world, where would it be?
New Zealand. My wife has always said she’s going to retire there…
What interesting fact do most fans of OCR not know about you?
I was a theatre major for 2yrs in college. And...I LOVE mayonnaise…
Who is one of the OCR athletes you admire most and why?
Hobie Call. His attitude and mindset align exactly with mine and I love his approach to racing.
If you hadn't found OCR, in what sport(s) would you be competing?
I would still be full-time racing Triathlon.
What are your goals with OCR?
Consistently be top 3 in AG/Elite Masters.
