Claimed by many to be the "Fastest Jew Ever" 


I am a local prep runner from Mercer Island turned club competitor at Michigan and now CNW. I work at Microsoft as Product Marketer for my day job. 2017 has been a great year for me in marathons, road racing, and cross country. On my way to the 2017 Eugene Marathon, I set PRs in the 5K and 10K on the road. My Eugene Marathon was another PR as I placed 6th in a competitive field. This Fall, I applied myself to CNW XC, despite some illness and tough races at the beginning of the season. I peaked nicely for the PNTF Champs and USATF Regionals race with 11th place and 10th place finishes on the team, respectively. It felt great to be a part of such a deep squad this XC season! Over the next 12 months I plan to train hard for a PR my third Boston Marathon in mid-April. My goal is to run 2:30-2:32.
