Home: Sarasota, Fla.
An athlete since high school, John began running “seriously” in 2006 as a healthy escape from economic issues. Despite building and losing three fortunes during a career in retail and real estate, John has remained clean and sober after seeking treatment for drug and alcohol addiction in 1987. John has run more than 70 marathons and ultras and is presently training for his run across America with famed international ultra runner and coach Ray Zahab.
