I’m an OCR endurance athlete. Played soccer for most of my life (17 years) turned to OCR 2012 running Tough Mudder with friends back in Michigan. Once I moved to California started training more seriously and competing more seriously with Spartan Race. My major accomplishments are finishing Worlds Toughest Mudder 2012 (5 laps), 50k Born to Run Ultra Marathon (2013), Spartan Race World Championships (2013). I am looking forward to competing in another Worlds Toughest Mudder and running along side some of the strongest people I know. We will be pushing each other to our bodies limits and will go beyond that. We are going to be a force out there in the cold but we can take it as a team.
