Career Highlights
2014 D III Cross Country All-American; 2nd and 3rd at Scottish National Cross Country Championships (2019, 2020).
I'm the third of four brothers - Connor, Barrett and Brendan. All ran in high school. Connor ran track and Brendan ran track and cross country. Brendan and I were teammates for two years at Middlebury. My brother Barrett was the captain of the cross country team when I was a first year in high school. When my mom, Ann, was in high school, she and a friend joined the boys cross country team because there was no girls team. My dad, Gordon, is a nice guy, but I don't have a running fact for him. My partner, Sarah, ran track and cross country at Middlebury and was All American in the mile.
Favorite Book

Pale Fire by Vladimir Nabokov

Favorite Song

I only listen to music on the treadmill, which I avoid at all costs. On the treadmill I play a jarring mix of hip hop, indie rock, and country.

Favorite Post-race Indulgence


Favorite Breakfast

Oatmeal with banana and walnuts

Favorite Running Memory
I loved long runs with the Middlebury cross country team. Just hanging out with my friends, having a good time on beautiful dirt roads in Vermont.
