How Long Have You Been Running? I started running as a freshman in college to get rid of stress from school.  When I moved to Missoula in 2004 I started trail running quite a bit.  In 2009 I signed up for my first 100 Miler and have been running ultras since.

Side Note: Mike, we are so proud of you for coming in 11th at the Ultra Trail du Monte Blanc and being the first American to cross the finish line at this 100 mile race in France! If you don’t know Mike, he’s a dedicated athlete who works extremely hard. He’s also pretty humble so you won’t hear him talking about his current successes. Great job, Mike!
