I started to run as a hobby, three years ago, inspired by my friend Brendan O'Keefe, who had been a professional runner and was getting back into the sport at the time. I had been a technology professional for sixteen years -currently serving at COA's IT department- and found in it a way to cultivate fitness and clear my mind.
Among other insterests sparked in me by notable members of the MDI community are theater, music, building, homesteading and entrepreneurship. All of these have filled my life in positive ways and I am always looking forward to give back.
About MDI Historical Society
The Mount Desert Island Historical Society keeps, discovers, and celebrates the history of Mount Desert Island. This year, the funds we raise will support interns and visiting scholars who will work and learn as they keep, discover, and celebrate the history of Mount Desert Island.
On race day listen for our percussion ensemble at the Old School House & Museum on Sound Drive in Mount Desert, near mile 18 of the Marathon, or mile 6 of the Half-Marathon.
The Mount Desert Island Marathon, Half-Marathon & Team Relay is pleased to help support MDI Historical Society.
