About the Author

Brian Burk is a published author, Ultra-marathon runner and a lives a life full of running adventures. Brian believes if you can't win the race at least run the race in an epic fashion.

Presently a Mechanical Skills Instructor with a fortune 100 company living and working out of North Carolina and Virginia. Prior to his present position he retired from the United States Air Force after serving as a Senior Noncommissioned Officer (SMSgt). During his 20-year military career, his travels had him living in five states. Brian also served tours overseas including a remote tour to Thule, Greenland and a combat tour in Northern Iraq.

Prior to his military service, he spent time as a Real Estate Agent and Sales Associate at an auto parts store in Erie, Pa.

Not a natural runner Brian found his passion for running in his 30s. Since then his running career has seen him complete race distances from 5k to 100 miles in length all across the country and overseas. Although never gracing the winners podium, Brian has run the Grand Canyon, the length of the Outer Banks of North Carolina and sections of The Appalachian Trail.

Likewise, his writing came on late. Brian could always tell a gripping story but found it hard to get it onto paper.

Running to Leadville is his first novel although he has been published in national running publications, running theme blogs and his own blog at
