Cancer first impacted my life at Hofstra University where I was a member of the university’s lacrosse team.  A member of the team, Nick Collelouri, was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma (NHL).  Sadly, he passed away in 2006.  Nick's legacy lives on through the Headstrong Foundation and is closely intertwined in the lacrosse community and has raised millions to fight cancer.

When I learned about The D10 in 2015 through a colleague, I knew I had to be involved. The D10 filled a competitive void I was missing from collegiate sports…

June 11, 2017 will be my second consecutive year competing in The D10. My colleague spoke about The D10 with such enthusiasm, I knew it would be unlike anything I ever experienced. Between the unique composition of the events and the cause, I was hooked. I registered without a second thought.

It is a painful truth that cancer impacts virtually everyone we know. I began to think each athlete goes into this challenge with a why. For me, The D10 is the perfect opportunity to make a difference for…

W680 meal 4 best breakfasts for a fitter life gear patrol


Look no further than the fat-free food boom of the late 20th century to know that the prevailing wisdom about what constitutes healthy food has been, at times, dead wrong. It turns out that a fat-free Entenmann’s raspberry danish is bad, while a high-fat avocado is good. Of course, as food fads come and go there are always people who have advocated for eating whole, nutrient-dense foods that haven’t been processed; that wisdom, thankfully, is mainstream at the moment, and some of the biggest advocates are athletes for whom food is fuel — and the cleaner the…

In the spring of 2012 my dad was diagnosed with an aggressive form of lymphoma. After an emergency surgery and months of intense chemotherapy and radiation he was thankfully declared cancer-free. As we were getting used to things going “back to normal” in our family, we received a phone call that my mother-in-law had been diagnosed with breast cancer. She fought a similar battle and thankfully reached the same cancer-free outcome. Both my dad and mother-in-law will tell you that their healthy lifestyles leading up to, as well as during, their…

Competing in The BOSTON D10’s Inaugural event in 2016 was by far one of the best moments of my life. Just about a year ago, I was “pressured” by my wife and good friend Jim Norcott (Boston’s D10 Champion), to sign up. I kept telling them that I wasn’t in the best shape and hated the thought of competing in a few of the events (the 400 meter and 800 meter run to be exact…). I grew up playing basketball, so I was more accustomed to running short sprints. It had been years…

In October, 1996 the Yankees were down 2 games to none in the World Series, and my dad was just finishing his third surgery and going through intense rounds of chemotherapy. I was 7 years old at the time and it was tough to grasp the severity of what was going on, but it was clear that things were not looking good. People were anticipating the end. But with a lot of prayer and a lot of science, the doctors and nurses at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center got my dad…
