You may have seen some of Chris’s helpful pre-race weather forecasts on our FB page, or you may already follow Chris’s Instagram account, @nvsunriserunner, for his beautiful, inspiring photos – but there’s much more to his story. I hope you enjoy getting to know Chris and his lovely family as much as I did.
Where are you from and where do you live now? Originally from Southern California in the town of La Cañada, near Pasadena. Living now in Sparks with my wife Karen and two young ones Savannah and Carson. We came to the Reno area from my previous NWS position in Kentucky a decade ago not sure how long we’d stay. It was particularly hot and smoky that first summer and I was like where the hell did we move to!? Well we’re still here and love the region’s recreational opportunities and manageable city size!
