What are your training and racing goals for this season?
Training goal: to complete a thorough marathon training program without the psychological burnout that I have experienced in the past Racing goal: to better my personal best marathon time of 3:15

What is your favorite Craftsbury Camp activity? Why?
The entire week is a pure celebration of running, making identifying one particular activity rather difficult and arbitrary. I think, though, the "Ridge Run" would have to be my favorite activity as it marks what has to be one of the most beautiful and peaceful runs I have ever done.

What is your favorite Craftsbury memory or story?
After two years at Craftsbury making some incredible friends, it again would be difficult to identify one memory or story amongst the many I have. Graduation ceremonies, though, will always produce at least one memory that lasts the year by this point you have gotten to know your fellow campers quite well and people are totally at ease with one another.

If I had to name one thing the day I arrived at camp in year one, wondering if it was going to be a good week. I then met a fellow camper one who had been often who was late upon arrival as he had to stop at a wine outlet store to pick up two cases of wine in advance of camp. I immediately knew this was going to be fun.
