John began training with NOVA in 2020 after 12 years of contemplating joining an Arlington running team (finding NOVA was worth the wait!). He was elected to the Board as Webmaster in 2022.

A native of New Hampshire, John studied at Bowdoin College in Maine where he competed on the Cross Country Running, Nordic Skiing, and Outdoor Track (Steeplechase) teams. He moved to Arlington after graduating and has since developed a fondness for the DC area, especially its quality transportation options (Metro, bus, bikeshare, protected bike lanes, trails). John’s favorite event of the year is running with the NOVA boys at USATF XC Club Nationals.

John also serves as a member of the Credit Union Cherry Blossom Race Committee.
