About the Author Sparky

I was introduced to running in 2012 by my good friend Steve McQuaide. Steve being an experienced runner himself, encouraged me to sign up for my first 5k. After that I was hooked. I mainly ran roads for the first couple of years until I heard about Born to Run Ultra. I enjoyed that race so much that I decided I wanted to do more trail runs. On top of being an active runner and a mentor for Fleet Feet Sports Burbank, I am also a photographer.
