About Ezra:

Ezra grew up in Santa Rosa, CA and has settled in the wonderful Bay Area by way of Purdue University in West Lafayette, IN and Clark University in Worcester, MA (pronounced woos-tah).

He became entrenched in endurance activities when he entered his first half marathon in May 2009.  After completion, he thought that was the worst possible thing ever and vowed never to do a full marathon. Little did he know the first taste hooked him! Ezra has since completed several half marathons, cutting 20 minutes from his first attempt, and set a personal record at the 2013 San Francisco Half Marathon (1:15:34)

Though he enjoys running quite a bit, Ezra is no one-trick pony!  He’s completed seven marathons – three of which he’s finished in under 3 hours.  2009 also marked the year Ezra entered his first triathlon, a Sprint Distance event and has not looked back since.  Sprint, Olympic, and Half Iron-distance, he’s compiled some great results along the way.  2014 will continue this trend, and in March he’ll try his hand at the Ironman distance in Cabo San Lucas.  Ezra aspires to go fast, have fun and make friends along the way. When he is not training he enjoys reading, volunteering and working in San Francisco.
