Partners & Sponsors

I am excited to be working with T8 apparel as my Apparel Sponsor. After chafe took me out of a 100 miler, I sought out an apparel solution that would eliminate that problem. T8 is made up of a crew of Australian Ultra Runners living in Asia that have created the best solutions for the hot and sticky conditions of Hong Kong and around the world. Their Commando boxer and Sherpa Short are “best in class”. Supercool, light, chafe-free with the best storage of any short I have ever worn, T8 is a major player in running long an strong in pure comfort. I will never look at racing 200 milers in fear with T8. Their Slogan: “Mind Over Mountain” is a philosophy that jives well with Cresting the Summit as ultras to me are about exploring our endless potential no matter how daunting the challenge. T8 also looks to give back to the trail running community through charity, community, and inspiration through running and their gear, something I truly look to do myself.
I am now working with Swiftwick Socks. I have been wearing their socks in training for years in my sock rotation but now am excited to be working with them as an Athlete Ambassador. Swiftwick offers a diverse range of performance socks utilizing innovative fibers and a fit that is just perfect. At Cocodona, Swiftwick socks helped save my blistered feet in the later stages of the race. From minimal designs, trail specific offerings and fashion styles that support our National Parks, this Brentwood, Tennessee company is such an awesome brand to work with.
I am excited to be an officially be a Nathan Sports Ambassador though I have worked for the brand as a Tech Rep and have had the support of Nathan since 2015. Nathan is your essentials experts from everything from hydration, visibility, gear and now apparel. They keep me running stronger and longer than ever before!
I am excited to be an Untapped Maple Fanatic “Pro” for 2023! As I continue to push my limits of extremes in heat, cold and distance, I need a fuel source that can perform equally well for me in all temps. Little did you know that Maple Syrup is that. Low Glycemic meaning long-lasting energy that does not hurt your gut and doesn’t spike your insulin. Natural complex carbs, sugars, antioxidants, and electrolytes and minerals. USDA Organic with no additives. Working with Untapped is exciting as they are financially supporting me some to travel and compete in my ultra adventures. A local New England Company out of Vermont, I am excited to showcase what you can do when you are fueled on maple!
I am happy to be on the Squirrel Nut Butter Elite Adventure Team for 2022 and now 2023. Chaffing is bad and after using SNB at the NJ Westfield timed ultra, it has been something I have needed for all of my training and racing. After my DNF at Virgil Crest 100 mile due to chafe, SNB will help me never have to worry about chafe woes ever again. As I continue to push my limits in races 100 miles and beyond in the multi-day world, SNB will be a valuable partner in getting me to the finish healthy.
If you want running snowshoes, you need Dions. Bob and Denise Dion have created the “best in class” running shoes. They are modular so you can change the cleats based on your snow conditions, and a binding if it gets well-worn. This allows you to replace the parts of the snowshoe that need it, rather than buying a whole new one. These have been my trusted brand and my first I wore when I got into snowshoe running in 2012. If you like bounding through the snow as blistering fast paces like a snow hare, than Dions are your best bet.
With helping to get Confluence Running started as a business while I was in Graduate School, I like to think that I will forever be tied to the Confluence Running store and community. Matt, Jenna, Chris and company run a great business now with stores all across the region. From humble beginnings in Binghamton, NY now reaching Corning, Goshen and more. They have been advocates of myself in my professional and athletic careers throughout my time so I thank them all for their support.
I joined the CMS Club team in 2022 and have been enjoying being a part of an amazing community and club. As one of the oldest run clubs in New England, it is fun upholding some of that history. As an ultra runner, much of the races that CMS partakes in helps me mix things up and get some speed work in.
