After ending his soccer, basketball, and baseball careers due to a 4’10” height in 10th grade, Stephen took up running. First attempting sprinting, but by the end of high school, he worked his way to become captain of the cross country team. This lead him to continue distance running in college, where at Syracuse University he graduated with a degree in Sports Management and Accounting, but more importantly created the SU Running Club. Since his time at Syracuse,– he has lowered his PR’s to 15:38 (5k), 33:17 (10k), and 1:11:20 (half), thanks in good part to training partners in GSTC. For work, Stephen is a Regional Account Representative for The Rockport Group. When you are in the market for your next pair of dress shoes, Stephen would love to tell you all about the features and benefits of the men’s and women’s line of Rockport.
