Whenever I accomplish finishing a marathon or ultra. The fact that I finished it no matter what place is to me an accomplishment.Considering that I use to hate running when I was younger. Finishing a race is fantastic for that matter.

The thought of conquering another race. The ability to run so I can get more running shoes. The goal to get to 100 marathons or ultras. To be the greatest runner from my hometown.
What is your personal mantra?
I am one with the Force and the Force is with Me. It’s from Rogue One and it’s so true.

Mark E Smith, Bryan Ferry, David Bowie and my running dad Chris Smith. Music is my passion outside of running. I am unique and different from these individuals. My running dad as I call him is what shaped me into an ultra marathoner.

I pretty much just read a lot of books and guinea pig’d on myself per se. Also with time came great responsibility.
