Dave Braunlich started running after he graduated college in 2013. 70lbs overweight, he decided that he would not spend his young adulthood fat and out of shape.
Slow, difficult one mile runs eventually became casual 4 mile jogs three or four times a week. The weight came off, and he signed up for his first half marathon (first ever race) on January 1st, 2016.
Since then he has fallen in love with racing and training, and has completed several marathons and ultramarathons with a marathon PR of 2:57:11. He hopes to complete his first 100k and 100 miler in the near future.
Dave currently resides in Lone Tree, Colorado and teaches 8th grade math. He has lived in Maine and New Jersey before moving to Colorado.
