Brian's Bio

I work as a civil engineer at a consulting engineering firm located in Glen Rock, NJ. Although I’m somewhat athletic, I was never a runner. However, I was always in awe of the spectacle of the NY Marathon and in 2015 I had an opportunity to run in it at age 60. So I trained and gave it a shot and although I was disappointed in my performance, it was such a rewarding experience  that I wanted to improve and continue running in future half and full marathons. I have since run in the 2016 and 2017 NY Marathon’s(and other half marathons) and in each instance have improved in my performance. I’m grateful that the Habitat for Humanity of Bergen County will allow me to run in the 2018 NY Marathon representing them and at the same time the fundraising money I am responsible for will assist in buying materials or paying for special services to construct housing for the less fortunate.
