I grew up on a dairy farm in central Pennsylvania. At the age of 13 I won the first road race I ever competed in, a large local Fourth of July Race after only running to get in shape for basketball which was my primary focus at the time. I truly got hooked on running and never looked back from that point on. I was very competitive at track and cross country in high school and went on to run for Penn State University.
I'm currently a structural engineer working for a forensic engineering consulting firm in the Washington DC metro area. I live in Arlington, VA and have recently discovered ultra running and trail running which has renewed my passion for running. I am actively involved in the DC running and triathlon community and frequent the Wednesday November Project workouts in my area. I'm also an avid yogi and aspiring fitness model.
