    “At 45, and as an athlete and avid amateur disc golfer for the previous twenty years, my body has experienced its fair share of ailments. I first experienced knee problems at 18, and I underwent three separate knee surgeries before age 20. Later in my 20s and 30s, I struggled with cartilage problems and nearly intractable quadriceps tendonitis in both knees. Through it all I have persevered and have never been kept away from my sport for long.

    It is all too easy to crumble under the weight of multiple, early-onset degenerative conditions such as arthritis and chronic lower back problems. It is tempting to say, "Not anymore. It hurts too much and I just have to take it easy from now on." I have not succumbed to that yet, and I do not plan to put away my discs and stop playing tournaments with my friends anytime soon.” –Marc

    What makes you inspirational?
    I love not only sharing my passion for trail running and being active outdoors, but also encouraging others to do the same. Best reward: convincing a casual runner to join in on an epic trail run or race, followed by seeing them get completely hooked on it.

    Also, I'm a former University of Oregon Duck track/cross-country runner who's converted to mostly trail running/ultrarunning. I broke my leg/ankle mountain biking (ankle "hardware" is still installed!) and part of my long recovery was to run on softer surfaces. I've been running the trails ever since. Random fact: to date I've run the Grand Canyon Rim to Rim to Rim (~48 miles) six times.

    Reaching the finish line! Reaching the finish line!

    I came to be an adult runner a little differently than most. I didn't start late in life. I actually started very early. I was a good high school runner and a decent collegiate miler. It was after my freshman year at college that I decided to chase a different dream. I wanted to play college football. After making the college football team I drifted away from athletics altogether. I would play on the occasional city league softball team and even played a little semi-pro football. But I no longer took my health seriously and you could tell. After being a two sport college athlete in my early twenties, by 25 I was severely overweight. I drank too often, ate too much, and stayed up too late.

    It wasn’t until my daughter was born in 2009 that I realized I needed to turn my life around. I weighed about 240 pounds and I didn’t feel good. I started hitting the gym and started hitting the streets again. It felt so good. It was hard work. There were times I wanted to quit. I didn’t feel I was losing weight fast enough, or my running times weren’t where I thought they should be. But I kept working and adjusting my diet. By my 30th birthday I was rounding into the best shape of my life.

    Now at 31 I have my eyes set on a new goal, becoming a professional ultra-runner and making the 2018 USA 24-hour team. I have a great support crew, my wife and daughter keep me grounded and motivated. I continue to spread my love for fitness and my passion for running as a coach here locally in South Florida and virtually across the country. I also coach local runners of all skill levels and recently started a website and am working to starting a local running club/racing team.

  • Ultra Dawn's Hot & Humid Review

    "They felt great, there is a lot of compression in these bad boys!

    I went for a short 4.5 mile run the first time. No issues with my calves cramping or any shin pain. A good feeling. When I got home I really didn’t want to take them off, they felt so good.

    Well today I decided I needed them on a long slow run in the heat and humidity.

    inked “They felt great, there is a lot of compression in these bad boys!"

    I wanted to see if there would be any slippage with my sweaty legs and there definitely was not. It was about 36 degrees Celsius (96.8 F) here today and I was a puddle. My poor sleeves ended up with some major salt stains! My run was a beauty through the riverfront trails.

    I got home and literally peeled the sleeves from my legs, they were soaked but my legs felt great. I just threw them in the sink and hand washed them, put them outside to dry because I plan on wearing them tonight for recovery!

    I am very pleased with the quality of these sleeves and will look into the other compression gear they offer! Which is quite a few! I’m a fan!"
