Greg Sisengrath Allen, TX - PATH projects KREW
I grew up in Northwest Arkansas, but I now live in North Texas. I participated in team sports growing up and absolutely did not enjoy running. In an effort to get back into shape, I ran my first road half marathon in 2009. Eventually made my way to trail and ultras in 2011 and haven’t looked back. I’ve mostly focused on Western States and Hard Rock qualifiers the last few years. I’m fresh off a finish at Bear 100 and have started my training cycle for Cocodona 250 next May. I’m a husband and father to 3 girls. I’m also a running coach and co-founder of a local trail running group, Team Dirt and Vert.
Running accomplishment(s) you are proud of
Cocodona 250 in May 2021, my first race above 100 miles. See full race recap HERE.
I'm also proud of my finish at Bear 100. Due to all the uncertainty and cancellation around running events in 2020, I did not have the typically build-up and structure in training that I normally would have. I was grateful to have the opportunity to race and challenge my body and mind in a beautiful area of the country.
Your favorite PATH projects gear?
My favorite gear is the Pyrenees T19 Shirt. It is so soft and comfortable. It's perfect to wear on the trail or just casually around town.
What do you enjoy about running?
I enjoy the places that running takes me. It's a chance to escape, take in the sights and sounds of the trail and free my mind.
Advice for runners looking to improve?
Consistency is key. Don't get focused on killer workouts or epic long runs. Day over day and week over week consistency in training drives sustained improvement.
