I grew up in a small town in New Jersey. In high school, I was 3rd in the nation in cross country, 3200 meter state champion, Golden West Champion, Junior Olympics Champion and Penn Relays Champion. I went on to win the Junior National 10,000 meter and placed 8th in the world. I graduated from the University of Florida in 1994 after being All-S.E.C and All-American seveal times. I set the home cross country 8k and indoor 5000 meter record for Florida as well. After college, I competed professionally on the road and track circuit, winning the U.S. 10,000 meter and ten mile champion in the late 90's. I qualified for the 2000 Olympic Trials in both the 10,000 meter and the Marathon. Since then, I've written three books and completed my Master's Degree in Cross Categorical Special Education..
