I am returning for a second year as a Triple Dare Running Company Ambassador and couldn’t be happier. I am a lover of all things trail running. Originally from Illinois, I have been living in Las Vegas since 2004. I am happily married to a Vegas native and we are the parents to three young children. I discovered trail running as a way to get outside, stay healthy, make friends and compete in various athletic pursuits. When I am not out in Red Rock chasing hilltops I spend my time being the best father and husband I can be, working (or as I refer to it “fighting for justice”) as a board certified criminal trial attorney at my law firm Hofland & Tomsheck, spending as much time as possible with my wonderful friends, playing with our family pets Winston (Australian Labradoodle) & Pistachio (desert tortoise), coaching my sons baseball and basketball teams, spending as much time as I can with my two beautiful daughters, cheering on my beloved Chicago Cubs, and fiercely competing in Spartan and obstacle course races throughout the United States (and beyond). This year I plan to run in as many Triple Dare events as I possibly can, and qualify for the World Championship in Spartan Racing, where I am currently ranked 8th in the US National Series. In trail running, as in life, I am constantly working towards “progress, not perfection” and trying to become “better every day.” I am beyond grateful for all I have in this amazing life and can’t wait to spend another year with my Triple Dare Family!
