BACKGROUND

I'm from New England. I'm an engineer-ish. I like running the Fifth Avenue Mile and Tom Brady. I don't like taking the Williamsburg Ferry. I've been running with NBR since 2014. I met Logan at a track meet at Icahn. Then a few days later, I saw James Chu's calves and I was sold.

FAVORITE run/WORKOUT

500-400-300-200-100-109 (total 1 mile) all at mile pace with 1:30-2:00 rest. I did this as my final workout before 5th Avenue Mile and it turned out well.*

BACKGROUND

I grew up in Central Jersey and ran the 800m in high school. I've run road races from 5k to the half marathon but I'm currently focused on shorter distances and track. I joined the group after meeting some nice NBR people on National Running Day in 2011. I work as a software engineer and also like programming stuff with running stats in my free time.

FAVORITE Run/WORKOUT

Favorite workout: 10x400 on the track at mile pace.

RUNNING GOALS FOR THE YEAR

I'm focusing on the mile for the first half of the year and running a bunch of indoor track meets. My goal is to PR in the mile in the low 4:20s. I'd love to do it at the NBR Track Meet in April. I don't have fall plans yet. I might try running a marathon again.

TWO TRUTHS AND A LIE

1. I shoved Paula Radcliffe in a race
2. I woke up in someone's trash after an NBR Prom
3. I've run naked on the track
