 How far back to you go with Varsity Sports?

I was actually one of the original owners of Dream Silk Screens that prints all of the Varsity Sports shirts. Dean Landry and I started the business in the garage behind my house on Eugene St. Jane Swift worked for us while she was in college.

I go back to the beginning with Varsity and am a investor/partner in all 3 Varsity Sports.

Now I am working at the BR store part-time one day a week and “as needed”.

How long have you been running and competing?

I began running in the early 80’s and went to compete in triathlons, as well. I have completed a Half Ironman.

What are some of your best times at the various distances?
10K is 36:55 and half marathon is 1:23:40.
