Career Highlights
3-time Olympic Trials qualifier; 8th, 2012 USATF Indoor Championships 3000m; 8th, 2014 Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon; 5-time NCAA D III All-American; 2nd, 2009 NCAA D III Championships, 5000m.
My wife, Stef, also runs marathons competitively for the BAA. Our daughter (Olive) is 6. She is not so interested in running, but loves gymnastics and spends a large percentage of her time upside down.
Greatest Accomplishment
In running, I am proud of my consistency over the last two decades. As one example, I have run under 15:00 in the 5K for 17 consecutive years. Outside of running, making it through the slog of a PhD program is an accomplishment!
Interesting Story
Despite living in a city with a wealth of running routes, I do the majority of my workouts on a 0.73-mile loop around Harvard Stadium. I also raced a marathon around a 200m indoor track (~211 laps).
