WHAT MOTIVATES YOU TO COMPETE? WHAT'S YOUR WHY?
I love exploring the boundaries of my potential as a human. Racing is one way to try to find the edges, I’ve also found long adventure runs and FKTs can lead towards the edge as well.

WHAT'S YOUR GU MOMENT?
After over 80 hours of racing at the Tor Des Geants, I found a Caramel Macchiato Energy Gel in the pocket of my shorts while I was serving a short term as the mayor of Bonktown. The flavor and caffeine bump from the gel worked like rocket fuel to get me moving again!
