Mark joined the running club in September of 2012 with his two sons Harold and Sean. Mark’s running career began just a few years ago when he started running just to get in better shape – from there he has steadily improved and made himself into quite the runner. Mark competes in distances from the mile to the marathon and has lost over 70 lbs in just a few short years.
Mark completed his first full marathon in Hyannis in February of 2012 in a time of just over 4 hours. The Windsor resident had an excellent showing at the 2011 ING Hartford Half in 1:51:55 and ran the Worcester Half Marathon in 2012 with his son in just over 2 hours. Mark is a regular at our Thursday Nights Under the Lights Summer Track & Field series.
This fall Mark has plans for the ING Hartford Marathon and then to continue his training with Ironman Half.
