How does Jeff get enough wind in the lungs to blow into that Bass Saxophone for a 4 Hour Gig?  See Below!

SPORTS BACKGROUND

The origins of Jeff's sports career go back to the 1970s at Suffield Academy  where he was a member of the cross-country, swimming and track teams. This turned out be an optimal foundation for what would be a long running career and a brief stint as a professional triathlete.

Running 1984 - 2002

JEFF'S LONG RUN

In 1984, inspired by the Olympics, particularly Joan Benoit’s marathon, Jeff re-took to the streets and prepared for the New Haven 20km. The race was a hoot and the journey began. 

Within a couple years, he was participating at the collegiate level at Southern Connecticut State Universityand taking part in big world events like the New York, Boston & Berlin marathons, even logging a win at local races now and then. This ‘run’ lasted until 2002 when the 2nd knee surgery ended things…for now.

Jeff's PRs

These will most likely stand unless some miracle Styrofoam® gets developed for knees. Until then, the sports action having to do with Jeff will be able to be viewed in the swimming section.

Jeff's disclaimer- "I fully admit rounding down to :00 on the upper distances because I really don't remember the seconds. I do remember seeing 55:XX at Guilford as I crossed the line, so the 56:00 is probably right for the 10 miler."
