Christopher is the training instructor for Plumbers Local 55 who takes pride educating the tradespersons responsible for building The Land.
In 2017, he made a lifestyle change and incorporated running into his fitness journey. Down 100lbs, he ran his first Cleveland Half Marathon in 2018 and even before he crossed the finish line, he knew his next goal was to tackle a marathon. He has since run multiple marathons, half marathons, 5ks and the Hood to Coast 199 mile relay race in Oregon last summer.
Christopher has earned Abbott World Major Marathon Stars in Chicago and NYC in ‘19 , Boston in ‘21 and has Berlin on the calendar for ‘23.
He started training as a multi sport athlete and completed his first sprint triathlon in ‘21 and quickly followed it up with an Olympic distance triathlon. He will be competing in triathlons this year including Cleveland, USAT Age Group Nationals in Milwaukee and his first 70.3 in NY.
Christopher is excited to be returning as an ambassador for Cleveland Marathon weekend this year. Cleveland is home and this race holds many memories. He can’t wait to make more!
He enjoys training runs in the Cleveland Metroparks and can be seen joining group runs/workouts throughout Cleveland with RunWildCLE, Run With the Winners, SoleTrain and Fleet Feet.
He resides in Fairview Park with his wife of 13 years and their rescued/rehomed dog Koda.
