Do you prefer to run alone, or in a group.
I typically run alone or with one or two people. It’s often hard to coordinate larger group runs.

 

Racing or adventure running?
I enjoy both. I tend to pick races that have an adventure running component to them.

 

How many hats do you own?
A lot. Too many. I like hats.

 

What is your favorite local eatery?
Probably Bru which is a great little brewery on the east side of Boulder that serves a variety of great food. Under The Sun is also really good.

 

What was the last prank you played on someone?
I joke around a lot, but pranks are a little more elaborate so I honestly can’t remember the last time I pranked someone.

 

Describe your driving:
Interpretive.

 

What’s your first verbal reaction when tripping while running?

I’m not very creative with what I write off.

 

Who are the last 5 people that called you?
TK, my wife, my mum, my uncle, Nick Triolo.

 

Have you ever used an alias for any reason?
Joe or Joseph is an old man’s name in France (where I grew up) so this one time as a kid I was trying to impress this girl and gave her an alias. I can’t remember exactly what name I used, but do recall thinking how incredibly stupid it sounded when I said it. It wasn’t even a real name, I just fumbled and said a word.

 

Are you guilty of answering a phone call with a text message?
No. I’m guilty of calling people.

 

What is the first website you check in the morning?
Usually email.

 

How do you define success in life?
Being content. Giving to others.
