I'm a running coach and motivational speaker. In running circles, I'm known as "The Jester". Since 2010, I've dressed as a jester in every race I run.......... I ran my first marathon in 1980, as a 17 year old, and have ran 200+ marathons/50k's since then (marathon PR: 3:01:18 at 18 years old). In 2009, at the age of 46, I ran my first 100-mile race. As of 11/20/17, I've ran a world record 150 races of 100 miles or longer, with an average distance of 130 miles (100-mile PR: 14:50:49 at the age of 51.).............. I currently hold over 20 world records for 100-mile or longer races............ Four major goals I am currently working on: 1. Oldest 100-mile winner - 50 x 100 mile wins over 50 years old (Currently have 32 over 50 years old, 35 lifetime, all over the age of 48. World record for most 100 mile lifetime wins is 46. U.S. record is currently 39)........... 2. Biggest 100-mile loser - Most 100-mile race losses in the world (any finish other than first place). Currently have 115 100-mile non-wins. Need 26 more to claim the world title. 3. Fastest 100-mile old dude. - Most sub-20 hour 100-mile finishes over 50. (Have to do more research to find out the current world record, and then run more sub-20s.) 4. 300 lifetime 100-mile finishes. Halfway there....................................... Dream big and dare to fail. DREAM EXTREME . . . and dare to EXCEL beyond your wildest dreams! Ever UPward & ONward . . . . . . . . .
