It took Dave seven Ironman triathlons before he saw the light, and realized that ultramarathons are where it’s at. He now spends his days running the trails on beautiful Vancouver Island with his partner Jackie and his two dogs, and racing the occasional ultra, whether close to home or overseas. He photographs enthusiastically (and writes reluctantly) for this site. Find out about his most recent adventures on his running blog.

Jackie is a best-selling author and photographer. She’s also an ace researcher and writer, and PhD scientist. She spends much of her life outdoors: kayaking, hiking, growing her own veggies.
