Around the same time, David began to find his footing on the trails, particularly in the ultra distances.  In 2011, he had a breakout race at the classic JFK 50 Miler, beating the course record that had stood for 17 years (it has since been reset).  And in 2012 he led the US men’s team with a 5th place finish at the 100km World Championships in Italy.  After a serious injury took him out of competition for almost 2 years, David is back on track, closing in on his 50th career ultra finish.Riddle Finishes
