Partners & Sponsors

I have been with 361 degrees since 2018 and they have been my go-to footwear choice for all of my training and racing miles. Their Quikfoam gives the runner a responsive but cushioned ride for the miles ahead-no matter if its 10 miles up to 200! The Spire was my shoe of choice for running across NJ.
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 run stronger and longer than ever before!
I am excited to be partnering with Uglow Sport to start 2022. They are an international apparel brand that offers futuristic style with seam-free construction. They have become my go-to apparel choice for all of my training and racing. I will never have to worry about chaffing ever again! There products are designed for the runner that does not ever want to worry about how their apparel ever. This is my go fast and far choice for all of my long ultras and multi-day running efforts.

I am happy to be on the Squirrel Nut Butter Elite Adventure Team for 2022. 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.
I have been with the Janji Collective since 2016 and they are made-up of a great group of runners. Janji is an apparel company that donates 2% of sales to clean water projects around the world. Each collection of apparel is made working with local artists from the region the collection represents. They are a true social-business and one you should check out. I support them because they are a great company made up of great people moving the industry forward!
Fits has been a premiere sponsor of mine since I got into ultras in 2012. The support from the company has been amazing. Their socks offer the best “Fit” in the industry. They are fitted like tubes so your feet float right into them. I rarely if ever get blisters with them and my feet have never taken me out of a run…EVER. I attribute that to Fits. They are made with Merino Wool which is the perfect all-season choice for trail running and snowshoe running. They are soooo good.
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, can 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.
I am excited to be a part of the Coros Explorer Team. Coros has jumped onto the scene as your best GPS watch solution for all your outdoor adventures. I learned about them through a co-worker of mine who was working for the brand. I like a watch to be easy to use, easy to upload data, and have great battery life. Well that’s Coros. With battery-life for days (36 hours for the Apex I use for my ultras), and a charge time from 0% to 100% in less time than a lunch break, you can always track your run without the hassle of your watch dying.
Boom Nutrition has been a partner of mine since 2012. Their gels have been my go-to race fuel to give me the right kick of energy. With more calories than standard gels, I get more fuel as well as smooth and great-tasting real fruit gels. They were in the game before Spring, Muir and some of those other real food gels. You got to try them out. I love the Raspberry and Orange Vanilla.
I have been with the Red Newt Racing/Mountain Peak Fitness trail team since 2014. This team is made-up of great athletes all across the Northeast and through community help to be great stewards to the trails in our area. You will see us rocking our kits out on the trails of NJ, NY, CT, MA, PA, NH, RI, and CO.
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.
