Originally only committing to run a half-marathon in 2011 so a friend would visit him from across the country, Chris realized as he trained that he actually enjoyed running. Over the years he worked his way up from half marathons to ultramarathons. After seeing how much fun pacers can have he decided to become one himself and now relishes the opportunity. Pacing is just about the only time you’ll see him running on the roads, however, as he primarily trains and races on single-track desert trails among the rattlesnakes and scorpions.
Despite his love for off-road adventures, he still truly enjoys the chance to meet newer runners at road races and help them accomplish their goals as others once did for him.
