    He is a member of the Montrail team (Trail races and trail ultras)

     

    He had a pretty decent TC 10 mile race (47:14)

    Although probably considered a long shot in Houston at the Marathon Trials - I would say his speed gives him a "real" long shot where other runners are a "it will happen long shot"  Although his hill / trail awesomeness would be more of an advantage on a hilly course.  I still think he could pull out a 2:11-2:12 in Houston
