Best thing about VFuel:
No flavor fatigue! While other brand gel flavours get tiresome, VFuel always tastes great, even late in a race.
Coffee. I’m a total geek. When traveling I try to hit as many cafes and roasteries possible to sample and critique their espresso. I even work part time at Desert Sun Coffee Roasters here in Durango.

Race Directing (in and around Durango)
Website/Media Design (my day job!)
Favorite trail running/running memory:
I’ve got two. Slogging up “the Boulevard” to my first hundred mile finish (the 2011 Leadville Trail 100), and PRing at the 2013 Eugene Marathon with a finishing sprint around Hayward Field.
