Ultra Trail Runner
Website: Dirty Running
Best beer: At the moment it is Pizza Port Chronic Ale, which they just started putting in cans. My all-time favorite is Ballast Point Sculpin IPA.
Best thing about VFuel: The taste. I also appreciate that the company was founded by endurance athletes who formulated the product for the unique recovery needs of those who push their own endurance limits.
I started running competitively at the age of 12 when my soccer coach told me that I was better off without a ball at my feet! When I started racing track that year I had some success at the half mile and 1500m distances, but I wasn’t winning very many races. However, distance running was something that I started to enjoy because I felt that hard work in training could make up for any lack in talent or natural ability.

Favorite trail running memory: Watching the sun rise over the clouds and ocean that made the Canary Islands look like they were floating. This occured while running up the volcano that is the Transvulcania ultra marathon Sky Running race.
