PROFILE

Greatest Accomplishment: Completing the monkey bars at spartan race and making it up Colossus and completing wheel world at savage race.

Best OCR Memory: my favorite memory is completing my very first spartan race in 2015. I had such a great time and it was such challenge. 

How did you get interested in OCR: me and two friends decided to give warrior dash a shot and we had so much fun that it just made want to try other racing series.

Least Favorite Obstacle: rope climb and the multi rig!!

What are you looking forward to the most:  I’m looking forward to trying to complete the New Jersey ultra beast. And maybe trying to complete a marathon this year

Favorite Pro Athlete and why: Matt “The Bear” Novakovich: He shows that age is just a number.

A little about yourself:  In 2010 I was diagnosed with Lyme disease. It makes it tough at times with working and and running when sometimes every muscle and joint hurts. But I also don’t let it define me. I push threw at times and it makes finishing these race all worth it. I’ve really enjoyed running and being able to get out on a trail and clear my mind and destress.
