University of Alberta Track and Field Team
Dave is a runner through and through. He loves everything from a 1500m for the University of Alberta Track to a 50km ultra marathon. Dave qualified for, and is competing in his goal race for 2012, the New York marathon this November. He’s aiming for a goal time of 2:40 to 2:45. Not limited to running, Dave has also competed in triathlons as well. He’s covered everything from a sprint distance to a couple half Ironmans (namely the Calgary Ironman 70.3 and Oliver Half Iron).
Working towards triathlons required the former non-swimmer to spend some time in the water, as well as take his first road bike out for a spin in the spring 2010. His perseverance has paid off, as Dave qualified for the 2012 world championships last summer as one of top 2 in his provincial age group. Although a lot of Dave’s time is spent pounding the pavement, he also loves spending time in the outdoors. Dave is an avid hiker and downhill skier. He also spends some time in the studio taking restorative and SAATVA yoga classes (the self admitted “tight guy in the corner”). Dave enjoys sharing his running knowledge and experience, and truly believes that life is all about the journey and not the destination.
