Name: Chris Taylor
Home: Lotus, CA
Occupation: Sacramento Police Officer
Date and name of first marathon: 2005 CIM
Number of marathons completed: 10+
Number of CIMs completed: 7
Marathon PR: I've never really run a marathon for speed. I usually just assemble a group of friends and create my own pace group focused on having a 26 mile laugh fest.
Marathon finish of which you are most proud: The first one, of course. I had "run a marathon" on my bucket list for a long time before I pulled it off.
Number of ultra marathons completed: 10+
Event finish of which you are most proud and why: I enjoyed them all tremendously. The second time I ran 50 miles was a great day because it proved the first time wasn't a fluke!
Other pacing experiences: I live near the Western States course so I usually go to pacer-central and find someone I have never met before that needs a pacer. It's always an epic experience.
Other hobbies: Skiing in the winter, camping and backpacking in the summer...
Anything else you think your Pace Group would like to know about you: W'ell run some, we'll walk some, we'll laugh a lot, and we will enjoy the journey! Email me for back-of-the-pack survival tips.
