Running entered my life in the fall of 2006 at the age of 46. I was 35 lbs overweight & on cholesterol medicine. My wife suggested I start walking or running to begin a healthier lifestyle. I began my walk/run program doing 2 miles/day and thought I would die. Somehow, I stuck with it & gradually increased my time running which over the months lead me to losing all the extra weight and not needing the medicine.
I started training and completing races from 5k's to 6 marathons, with Boston & NY being the two I am most excited about. Trail running has become a great passion of mine these last few years. It still amazes me that I have been able to complete many ultra-marathons with distances of 50K to 100 miles. Working at Tri-State Running Company will allow me to share my knowledge, experience, and passion with all of you.
