Hometown: Hillsdale, NJ

Years of Experience: Part time at Skirack since 2014. I work in the Run department and have been running for over 40 years with several marathons and races under my belt. I'm also a member of GMAA.

Certifications and Awards: I have run the Boston Marathon 3 times. My best marathon was at age 45 - 2:57:13 at the Vermont City Marathon.

Outside Interests and Hobbies: Interested in all running, Nordic skiing, biking, kayaking , and just about anything outdoors. Like to run with old friends on our weekly "geezer" runs.

Favorite Gear: Love Cannondale bikes, Patagonia, and the whole Brooks line - more specifically The Ghost.

Favorite local outdoor destination(s): I love to run the South Burlington bike paths with my running buddies - I've been doing it for about 20 years. And love the Burlington area in general - including the Lake!

Fun Fact or Story: Back in the mid 90's I liked the challenge of marathons especially Boston and set out to qualify for the 100th running of the BAA Boston marathon which I did when I was 43. It was an incredible day and very inclusive with runners from all over the world.Then a couple of years later my goal was a sub 3 hour marathon that happened at Vermont City Marathon in 1998. Now i'd like to stay at a sub 4 the next time I run one.
