About 7 Minute Miles

NorthShore

7minutemiles.com is the personal website of David Michael Kingsbury.

Why seven minute miles?

It’s the pace I need to run to qualify for the Boston Marathon.

Who am I?

The short tagline says husband, father, stadium IT director. An extended version would add runner, golfer, skier, mountain biker, foodie, photographer, traveler (41 of 50 states, nine countries) and music lover. The really long version can be found here, while my résumé is here.

Family

My (retired) parents still live in the same house in St. Paul that I grew up in, while my brother and sister both moved away (Orlando and Duluth, respectively). Kid one just moved out and attends MCTC, while kid two is almost halfway done with high school. Married to my high school sweetheart since ’91.

The company

There is still technically a company called 7 Minute Miles, LLC, that I own, but it is currently dormant. Previously known as Golden Links Publishing, Ltd., projects included technology consulting, web development and online publishing (including the MN Publishing Company web sites).

Skiing

I started skiing when I was nine years old. For the first three years, I skied at one place only–Schweitzer Basin in Sandpoint, Idaho. Here are some of the other areas I’ve visited over the years:

I raced slalom in high school at an area in Wisconsin called Birch Park, which is now a golf course and housing development. I’m very old school when it comes to skiing–no snowboards and no shaped skis for me. Started nordic skiing (and snowshoeing) in 2010.
