ABOUT ME: I'm a recent 18 year Navy Corpsman Veteran with Special Operations/SEAL Teams. I have 5 combat deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan and recently moved to Tennessee to be closer to my 7 year old son. I'm a huge fan of music, especially 90's hip hop, however, I rarely run with music or headphones. The sounds of the forest and my thoughts are all I need. I played soccer most of my life and when I was stationed with a few guys who were training for a Triathlon, and I jumped in with both feet. I became pretty competitive winning my Age Group and Military Divisions in multiple races. A few years later, I was asked to run a 50k Ultra-Marathon. I hated every minute of it and when I finished I swore I'd never do another. 7 years later here I am with several top finishes in 50k, 50mi and 100k distances and an overall win.

WHY TEAM OS1st? Since the first time I put them on, OS1st has been my go-to for running, injury prevention and recovery, I even wear them around on non-race days. They're comfortable, light and deliver every time.
