Years on Atlas Racing: Since the beginning!!

My Story:
I grew up skiing and ski racing here in the bitter cold winters of New England. Following a solid ski racing and running career at St. Lawrence University in upstate New York, I spent most of my 20s in the endurance mecca of Boulder, Colorado. It was during this time that I befriended an outgoing, intelligent guy by the name of Adam Chase (Atlas Racing Team captain) that was in the process of putting together a snowshoe team. After a number of years, a move back East, a marriage and two children, I'm still at it running/snowshoeing/cross-country skiing in all seasons and in all weather. I can't imagine my life without getting out at least once a day.

Due to mild winter most of my racing in 2006 was done on the roads of New England where I had great success at distances ranging from the mile to the half marathon. Named by New England Runner magazine as the Maine Runner of the year in 2006.

Season Goals:
Continue to introduce people to the great sport of snowshoeing. Mix it up in the very competitive New England racing scene. Compete again in the National Championships.
