His fitness journey began with competitive fitness about eight years ago. Having family members involved with weightlifting, he decided to give CrossFit a try. The two sports have complimented each other throughout Adam’s development. Over the years, as his running times improved, so have his numbers in the weight room, and his scores in gymnastics workouts.
Since then, he has completed 13 full marathons, including one six-hour Ultra Race. His best time to date stands at 3:24:12, which he achieved the same week he hit his personal best Clean and Jerk!
For the past two years, Adam has completed the Dopey Challenge, a grueling four-day event. The run is held in Disney World in January, and begins with a 5k on day 1, a 10k on day 2, a half-marathon on day 3, and a full marathon on day 4!
It has been a dream of Adam’s to run the Boston Marathon, and this year, he made the commitment! While training in CrossFit, participating in several CrossFit competitions including the CrossFit Games Open, Adam manages to keep his running volume up and improve his numbers. Adam even ran a marathon DURING the CrossFit Games Open, and finished with this highest placement to date!
Adam’s dedication includes running over 40 miles per week for the Boston Marathon, and keeping up his strict macro-conscious nutrition plan!
Having to raise money for the Boston Marathon, Adam runs for One Mission, a company that aids in the care of children with cancer.
One Mission makes living in the hospital less lonely and stressful, bringing back joy during a time of fear and uncertainty. They also give children and their loved ones the support they need to get through the emotional and financial challenges of treatment.
Adam had a commitment of $10,000 dollars, and has held various fundraising ventures. He has already exceeded his goal, earning almost $12,000!
