My first post

Ok, I've given in to peer pressure from my fellow teammates on the Wasatch Speedgoat Mountain Racing Team and started this blog. I have no idea how often I'll post, probably after a memorable run or race or maybe just to brag on my grandson occasionally.
Just a little about me. I live near Ogden, UT and work as an Engineer in the Aerospace/defense industry. My wife and I are empty nesters now and while we miss the kids, we are enjoying not having to raise them anymore.
I enjoy running. I enjoy being in good enough shape to get out to very remote areas in the surrounding mountains in a short amount of time. I enjoy having the ability to run ultradistances. I enjoy being around my fellow trail runners, some of the nicest people you'll ever meet.
As part of my running hobby, I'm a volunteer with the trail patrol on Antelope Island State Park. It's the largest island in the Great Salt Lake (28,000 acres). I also direct a trail race every year on the island called the Antelope Island Buffalo Run. Ok, enough for the first post, I'm going to bed.
