Me and my awesome crew at the last aid station at Superior 100.
Superior Spring 50k
Voyageur 50 – Just after the turn around.
I’m a married (20th Anniversary this August), Father of 2 sons, who turned 40 in 2017. I live at the centre of it all (well, North America at least, geographically, that is) in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
I’ve been a runner since High School, starting out with road 10k’s, triathlons and half-marathons. Eventually that increased to road marathons, and within the past 5 years my true love of trail ultras. This past year, since I’m officially “over the hill”, I created my own Epic40 year which included many adventures. Most notably, I was able to complete the Superior Spring 50k, Voyageur 50 mile, and Superior Fall 100 mile, my first 100 mile finish. I was also able to crew and pace my good friend and super-fast, talented, and hard-working runner, Mallory Richard, at Western States Endurance Run, the grand daddy of 100 mile races. She had an amazing race and finished 11th Female.
After 18 years in vocational pastoral ministry, circumstances made for a change and though I wouldn’t have expected that change, I’m excited for the future. What fills my days? I’m lucky to be able to do property maintenance for Pankratz Management Group, I deliver coffee one morning a week for local coffee roaster, Dogwood Coffee Co. and I recently began working at an amazing local, independently-owned running store, City Park Runners. And if you’ve seen the rest of this website, I’m also working at organizing some great trail and ultra events in Manitoba, which I’m super excited about.
