 About Sam:

Sam grew up on a farm just north of Ripon. He enjoys running, cycling, and being outside. He and his wife Meg enjoy running together, drinking great cups of coffee wherever they can be found, and trying to beat their sons, Archer and Ramsey, up in the morning to steal a few quiet moments before each crazy day begins!

Fun Facts about Sam:

If you could have lunch with anyone, who would it be? Out of everyone living – My wife, Meg. We do good lunches together!

What was your favorite childhood TV show? Recess

What are three things in your refrigerator? Hard salami, greek yogurt, and apples.

What are three must-have things you’d pack if you were going away for a whole year? (assuming I can bring more than three things) I’d definitely pack a pair of running shoes, my favorite coffee thermos, and a notebook to write in.

The most fun I ever have is when I… am with family and friends.

What’s your favorite way to spend a day off? Slowly. A good run in the morning, a big brunch, spend some time on the farm eating fresh strawberries, and spend the rest of the afternoon reading and dozing in the hammock before eating dinner with the whole family and letting it last until late at night.  

How I’d blow $100 if I had to spend it on myself… I’d probably use it for the gas needed for a trip up to Lake Superior in the middle of a hot summer.

What’s your dream vacation? A guided trail-running trip through the Alps.  

What are some of your favorite hobbies? Running, exploring, reading, writing, and discussing things with some vigor.  

What’s your favorite dessert? Concrete Mixer from Culver’s with Twix and Raspberry mixed in. Don’t knock it till you’ve tried it!

What’s something you’ve always wanted to do but haven’t yet? Ski in Colorado/out west.  

Is there anything else you’d like to share with whoever’s reading this? I like coffee. Let’s grab a cup together soon (my treat!).
