Craig began running at the tender age of 11 and hasn’t looked back since. From humble beginnings, Craig proved that hard work and dedication to running can indeed pay off. He climbed the running ranks through his high school years as a Holmdel Hornet and went on to Villanova University where he continued to thrive and develop as a runner. Competing as a grad student at Monmouth University capped off Craig’s collegiate running career and it was a seamless transition into road racing. Donning the Runner’s High racing singlet, Craig has run numerous races over the past years boasting several PRs, first place finishes, and four top 15 finishes at the Philadelphia Marathon in 2008, 2009, 2013 & 2014. Craig holds personal bests of 14:35 (5k), 30:42 (10k), 1:08:20 (1/2 Marathon), and 2:25:09 (Marathon). Running gave so much to Craig so it was only natural that he ditch the daily grind to pursue his goal of owning and operating a successful running store.
