Kevin Beals is a gentleman and a scholar. A dedicated member of the Manchester Running Company RC, Beals has perfect attendance at the Monday night group runs and has participated in every Manchester Running Company sponsored event. He is also a new homeowner in Manchester as of June 2010.
Beals began his running career in high school (or maybe middle school) where he ran for coach Mike Bendzinski for four years at Manchester High School. One of the most dedicated runners on the team and a true leader, Beals attended Wentworth Institute of Technology in Boston and founded the Track & Field Club for the Leopards. He organized team practices and basically ran the whole show. His leadership and assertiveness could tame a rabid lion on steroids – thankfully he’s only had to do that twice.
Kevin is always one to support the local running scene; he participates in many events throughout the year including the annual Manchester Road Race. A native of Manchester, Beals also currently resides in town. Beals takes the George Costanza outlook on life and claims he is an architect for a living; in reality he is a top designer for a well-respected architecture firm in Hartford.
