My Motivational Quotes

These are a few quotes that inspire me:

My mother said to me, "If you become a soldier, you'll be a general; if you become a monk, you'll end up as the Pope." Instead, I became a painter and wound up as Picasso. ---Pablo Picaso

I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.
--- Michael Jordan

"Never let others' own limitations set boundaries on your own abilities and dreams."--- My Dad

"If I find 10,000 ways something won't work, I haven't failed. I am not discouraged, because every wrong attempt discarded is often a step forward."
---Thomas Edison

"Around here, however, we don't look backwards for very long. We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things... and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths."
---Walt Disney

"But it ain't about how hard ya hit. It's about how hard you can get it and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done! Now if you know what you're worth then go out and get what you're worth. But ya gotta be willing to take the hits, and not pointing fingers saying you ain't where you wanna be because of him, or her, or anybody! Cowards do that and that ain't you!"
--- Rocky Balboa

here is a link was to buy the body glide. The race went well it was my first time I directed a race in Colorado. I directed the few races back in Indiana. I believe I can make it better. Someone from Runnerspace was out there and took some video so it should be up soon.

It wasnt that bad, but I was more worried about the time. I was suppose to lower my time for that steeple to make it to nationals for DII but I made it without having to lower my time. I was the last one to make it, so I'm super lucky.

The View from Hayward and Stanford

"You have to wonder at times what you're doing out there. Over the years, I've given myself a thousand reasons to keep running, but it always comes back to where it started. It comes down to self-satisfaction and a sense of achievement."
- Steve Prefontaine

Who I Am...



I went to Lower Merion High School in Ardmore PA where I was basically a utility guy doing everything from High Jump to the 100 to the 800 to the Long Jump. I had pretty good success there (400 - 47.4 split, LJ 22'3) and went to Rutgers, the good old State University of New Jersey where I trained under Luis Tomlinson for sprints. My Freshman year I made the United States Junior Team as a relay alternate in the 400 (47.32) and also ran a world fastest 500m indoor (1:01:57) which is what I was primarily known for in my years there. The rest of my years my team and I had great success winning the IC4A Championships twice (Indoor and Outdoor) and being runner up on several more occasions as well as winning the BIG EAST Championships and being runner up on three occasions.

Upon graduating I figured I was finished running until I got a call to come to try to test myself in the 800 in Eugene. This year will be a great test for me knowing that I have never trained more than 15 miles a week and never really ran anything over 500 in college. I am working with a great team, Team XO as well as runners from OTC Elite and have fantastic teammates and coaches for both. Hopefully this year and my trip across the country will pay off!

I miss my home quite a bit in Philadelphia and in New Jersey but am enjoying everything in Eugene at the same time. I have three siblings, two older sisters and a younger brother. My younger brother Max is a Decathlete at UPENN and my older sisters are pretty much useless from a sports standpoint. I have a great girlfriend at home who I miss as well as wonderful friends from all over the world (and by the world I mean mostly New Jersey and Philadelphia). I have my Masters Degree in Elementary Education and am looking to go back to school for Higher Education Administration when things here finally come to a close in a few years. I have fantastic parents and a love for anything Rutgers.

Check out what The Burns and I have been working on with RunnerSpace Live!


Keep Moving Forward
