The world runner and a Hoka One One Athlete. A closet endurance junkie and masochist. One of the first who left their comfort zone and went to the dark side of running — the ultra distance. The most versatile in the bunch. From Ultra Road, Ulta Trail, to Ironman distance triathlon, you name it, he has done it. Finished Quad Zilla in Canada where one has to finish a full marathon for four (4) consecutive days. Done most of the Marathon Majors (Berlin, Tokyo, and New York) and now his sights is on the world cup of marathons – Boston Marathon.
