Hometown: Boonville, NY
Background: Grew up as a wrestler and hs runner for Adirondack HS ’91 in Central NY-Section 3 (Utica/Syracuse area). My dad coached hs track and cross country for nearly 50 years, so after all this time, it’s still in the blood. Went to college at the U.S. Naval Academy ’95 and finally got back into competitive running when I left the Navy in 2007.
I've been racing competitively since... 1978’ish-- My dad had my older brother and I running Track and XC meets early in grade school. Compared to the all-day, Sunday wrestling tournaments, we loved the AAU Track and XC invitationals.
PRs: Haven’t seen a PR since about 1990, but current masters races have been:
· 2014 San Diego Half (5K) - 16:41
· 2014 Carlsbad 5000- 17:33
Favorite Race: Ursula Rains XC/Morely Field
