FF: Of all the shoes you wear, which are your favorite and why?
BB: Hoka One One- Challenger 2 for trails

Clifton 3 for roads. I wore lots of different brands including several different "barefoot" styles. Discovered Hoka in 2012 and even members of my family and many ultra runners laughed at me. Now more than 60% of ultra runners (including family) are now running in these shoes.  

FF: Have you ever had a nickname?  What is it?                                                                                                     BB: Just call me Bob.

FF: What was your first job?                                                                                                                            BB: My first job was bag boy at Winn Dixie in N. Augusta, SC.  In college I was a short order cook in a bowling center. That's where you learn how to work with public.

FF: What’s your favorite family tradition?                                                                                                            BB: Donna and I both love decorating for Christmas. We always start on the Friday following Thanksgiving.

FF: Aside from necessities, what’s something you can’t live without?                                                                                                                                                       BB: Music, 60s, 70s,80, 90, I always run and work with I-pod when allowed.

 FF: If you had 30 minutes of free time, what would you do?                                                                                                                                                                          BB: Work in my yard. I love flowers and landscaping. My favorite are tools are my lawnmower and weed eater.

 FF: If you were Waldo, where would you be?                                                                                                                                                                                           BB: Animal Kingdom at Disney. Just amazed at landscaping.
