Proudest achievement? I ran 31 times in 31 days. I'm not a run-streak kind of guy, but this was a goal for May. Also, I ran with Hellah Sidibe as he did his transcontinental run from LA to NYC! Found him around Tuscola, IL and did about 8 miles with him. Great experience. I have two ultras coming up: Last Buffalo Standing in July and Howl at the Moon in August. Need to keep my mileage up in June, even with the heat and humidity. It's doable. My main goal for June is 150+ miles with speed work once a week.

|Me and Hellah!|

In addition to his web site, Hellah has several social media channels. I found him on his YouTube page which documents his daily running streak (4 years) and has lots of inspiration to start and keep running. All are good follows.
Special thanks to my wife for dropping me off when we found Hellah running on the side of US 36, then waiting for almost 2 hours before picking me up back in Tuscola and driving home. You're the best.
