Phil grew up in Oxnard, CA where he started running at the age of 5 for the local youth track club, the Oxnard Stars. Currently, Phil lives with his wife Krista and their dog Lucy in San Luis Obispo where they are both local teachers. When not running or working, he enjoys traveling with Krista; taking Lucy for walks; going to Justin Timberlake, Jay Z, Beyonce, or Red Hot Chili Peppers concerts; and relaxing. Phil says, “I have very much enjoyed connecting with coaches, teammates, and supporters over the years and look forward to more great running adventures.”

Fun Fact: Along with fellow Aggie Will Geiken, Phil completed the entire 222 miles of the John Muir Trail from Yosemite Valley to Mt. Whitney in 2016.
