About Me

I ran cross-country, indoor track and outdoor track while an undergraduate at MIT from 1991-1995. I primarily focused on the 1500m and was fortunate enough to win the 1500m final at the 1994 DIII Outdoor National Championships in a very tactical 3:52 (splits were 66, 2:09, 3:06, 3:52). After graduation I continued working on the middle-distance events with Halston Taylor as my coach and ran several of the Reebok High-Performance track meets between 1996 and 1999. I set PRs of 3:48.69 (1500m), 8:21.07 (3000m) and 14:32.29 (5000m) during this time. Unfortunately, I tore my achilles tendon in the middle of the 1999 track season and that pretty much ended my competitive running career until the summer of 2007. I made several attempts to come back to running during this time with little success. In the years between 1999 and 2007 I married my wife Michelle, who I have four wonderful children with, went back to graduate school at MIT and established myself in my career. In the summer of 2008 I realized that I really missed running and competing and started the long journey that I am now on.
