  • How did you become part of MYB?
    I was always doing my runs on my own. One day Ashley T threw out the invitation to me via email to join, and so I figured why not give it a go.  Very glad I did!
  • Why did you start walking/running?
    About 3 years ago, I was going through some hard times in my life and I needed to put myself in a better place. One of my best friends invited me to my first NOTC Summer Series. Now before that, the one time in my life I actually ran was on a playground track team when i was 12, and I quit that after 2 weeks. Summer Series # 1 I bombed it. But then i showed up for the next one, and the next one. Who knew 3 years later, this was all I'd ever wanna do now.
  • What is your favorite post race/cheat meal?
    I'm a steak and potato kinda guy with a side of beer.
  • If you could have one super power, what would it be & why?
    Speed. So i could finally break under 6 minutes at the Power Mile 2017.
  • If you could run with any celebrity, who would you choose?
    I would choose Mila Kunis! C'mon who wouldn't follow that!
