His Story:

  • I started running XC in high school to get in shape for wrestling season. By my junior year, I realized I was actually better at running. Lehigh was the only Div. 1 school that showed much interest in me. I improved gradually during my college career and managed to run school records in the 5k and 10k before suffering a season-ending stress fracture in April of my senior year. I initially moved to Madison, WI after college to work for a Healthcare IT company. While self-coaching, I managed a surprising finish at USATF Club XC Nationals and a 63:21 for my Half Marathon debut in Houston. I continued to train with varying consistency for another year and returned to good form in time for the Olympic Marathon Trials in LA, but suffered a stress reaction 2 weeks before the race and was forced to withdraw. At that point I decided I wanted to put my working career aside for a few years and focus on running to truly see where my potential lies. I found Roots and was sold rather quickly. I moved to Boulder a month later and have been loving training again just like I did back in college.
