Not called the Run to the Sun for nothing- ah, the beautiful clouds of Hawaii!
More recently he won the Run to the Sun on Maui. It started at sea level (the Maui Mall in Kahului) and finished 36.4 miles later at the top of Haleakala crater, 10,023 feet above sea level.
It was his first "ultra marathon," so he was a bit nervous as to how he'd do. He'd also never been to Maui before, and hadn't seen 10,000 feet since he lived in Colorado many years ago. He won the race, finishing in 5 hours 28 minutes and 38 seconds, which was the best finishing time in 13 years. He beat the second-place finisher by 40 minutes.
