Though Brian only joined the Fleet Feet team in July 2014, he brings with him three years of Run Specialty experience and a lifetime of passion for running. A product of central NC, Brian competed in Cross Country and Track through high school, and ran Cross Country collegiately for the Barton College Bulldogs while working towards a BS in Sports Management. Since college, Brian has transitioned to longer distance races and currently holds a 13.1 PR of 1:15:07 and a 26.2 PR of 2:41:13. Most recently, he ran in the 2014 Boston Marathon and is extremely eager to return to Boylston St (and Wellesley) in 2015, with his eyes also set on trying to improve on his third place finish in the Grandfather Mountain Marathon. Brian's favorite part of working at Fleet Feet Sports is being able to help others find their own reasons for being passionate about running and living healthier lifestyles. When not running, he can be found frequenting local coffee shops and book stores or relaxing at home with his cat, The Lady Kiki.
