Growing up south of Boston in Quincy, Brendan was a member of the youth track club by the age of 10. He went to High school in Boston and ran cross country and track all four years. He has continued to run throughout Boston alone and with a Boston running club. As well, he has completed 7 ¾ marathons (the heat during Boston 2012 got the best of him), 12 half marathons, and numerous 5ks, 10ks and 5 milers. He enjoy running at any pace and showing off what a great city Boston is to run in and around.
