Editor’s Note: Adam is a senior attending Hellgate High School and will be running for one of the best collegiate programs in the nation next year at the University of Colorado at Boulder. We chose to profile Adam not because of his standout abilities as a cross country runner and trackster but because of his senior project he recently completed. Adam chose to go from the lowest point in the lower 48 to the highest point – Death Valley to Mt Whitney – just a few weekends ago. He did the trip with his mentor, Mike Foote, in a few days. The proceeds all go back to Outdoor Nation, a non-profit designed to get youth outdoors. Intersted in helping Adam out? Click here for details.

Words of WisdomWe run because we enjoy it, so I always try to not get stressed before a big race, but instead stay relaxed and enjoy the excitement of everything that encompasses the race.

Anything Else You’d Like to AddI can’t think of how Runner’s Edge could have been more supportive of me and the Hellgate cross country and track teams over the last few years, thank you to Anders Brooker and staff!
