I am a teacher in Nashville, TN where I live with my wife (and daughter is on the way!). I grew up in Chattanooga, TN and lived for 7 years in the Shenandoah Valley and in Charlottesville, VA - all of these places have such rich running culture, and I fell in love with trail running while at college in Lexington, VA. Since that time, I have raced half marathons, 25k, 50k, and 50m races across the southeast, but often coming back to the places that I love - the West Virginia highlands, Lookout Mountain TN, the trails throughout the Great Smoky Mountains, and around Boone, NC. I strive to create a positive running culture with the runners on my cross country squad, with friends in Nashville, and with those I meet out on the trail.
