Qualified for 2017 World 24 Hour Championship as part of the US National Distance Team
Meeting the minimum qualification of 140 miles for the 24 hour US Team is something that I've been working toward for a while and is a huge accomplishment for me. I was able to run 143.39 miles in 24 hours averaging just over 10 minute pace per mile throughout the race. The team selected the top 6 athletes based on distance completed.

Fastest Known Time for the MA Midstate Trail
Completed the trek across MA starting at NH and ending on the RI border with Jake Dissinger and Chad Hornbaker while my coach Amy Rusiecki helped crew for us along the way. Finished in 23 hours and 43 minutes.
Milez 4 Red Cross
When the 2011 NYC Marathon was canceled due to Hurricane Sandy I decided to take matters into my own hands to help raise funds for the relief efforts. After driving down to NYC on Friday, I immediately decided to begin raising funds at $10 per mile I would run and donate all the funds to the American Red Cross. Within about 24 hours the event skyrocketed and I had local Boston sponsors and dozens of people running with me. Togethr we ran over 300 miles and raised over $3,000 for relief efforts. I personally had run 100k (62 miles) and it was the furthest I had ever run at that point.
5x Boston Marathon Finisher
As one of the world's most prestigeous marathons this race is always my favorite day of the year living in Boston.
3x 24 hour race finisher
3 Days at the Fair, Augusta, NJ - 1st place overall with 123 total miles
Run Around the World, Lebanon, TN - 1st place overall with 130 miles
Desert Solstice 24 hour Invitational Track Meet, Phoenix, AZ - 3rd place overall with 143.39 total miles

200 on Route 100 VT North to South ride
Noted as one of the "10 toughest 1 day rides in America" this grinding ~215 mile ride (depending on how many times we got lost) from the Canada to MA border gains over 13000 ft in elevation hitting the highest point of Mount Snow at 180 miles into the ride. I was the fastest (possibly still only) person to ever accomplish this ride on a tri-bike.
White Mountains, NH
2x finisher of the Presidential Traverse, a ~20 mile hike/run across 7 Presidential peaks in the White Mountains which accumulates almost 10k feet of elevation gain.
3x finisher of the Pemi Loop, a ~31mile hike/run across 8 of the NH 4,000 footers in the Pemigewasset Wilderness of NH with over 9k feet of elevation gain. This is noted as the 2nd hardest day hike in America by Backpacker Magazine.
More to come.
Rim to Rim to Rim Grand Canyon Run
Completed my first R2R2R in April of 2016 in 12 hours and 15 minutes with good friends at my side. It was an amazing experience to see the Grand Canyon like that first hand. Highly recommended.
This grueling 24 hour looped course event pitts competitors against each other to see who can do the most obstacles, push the hardest, and finish with the most miles. This is by far one of the hardest events I've ever completed.
2x Ironman Finisher
I've finished the triathlon world's "ultimate endurance event" twice. Then immediately got bored of the event. Ironman Lake Placid 2012 and Ironman Brazil 2014.
2014 Ironman 70.3 World Championship Qualifier/Finisher
Qualified at the 2013 Ironman Timberman 70.3 with a time of 4:49
