I was born in Toronto, Canada and grew up in New Hampshire. With no cross-country or track experience I don’t have the typical runner’s resume that many athletes have in obstacle racing. I did play college basketball and a couple years of semi-professional baseball, but I had never run more than 3 consecutive miles until I was 36 years old!
My first obstacle race was a Spartan Sprint in late 2012, and that was the one that hooked me. I finished 56th in the open heat of that race, and barely made the top 10 of my age group - but I had found my passion. Since then, I've logged thousands of hours of OCR-specific training running trails and inclined treadmills, doing countless pullups and carrying heavy objects.
Since 2012, I’ve dedicated myself to the sport of obstacle racing and have done everything I can with training, nutrition and mindset to constantly improve. Currently, I'm focused on short to mid distance courses.
Outside of competing, I'm a founding partner of FitLincMedia, where we help OCR athletes and businesses grow their brands, dial-in their social media and connect with each other around sponsorship.
