In addition to the spectacularly interesting life I lead as Fred, I moonlight as Frizzly, a vegan marathoner based in Southfield, MI.
In many respects, Frizzly is my alter ego. Emerging first to challenge bullies when I was a high school student, Frizzly has come to symbolize the competitive drive that lays dormant inside most of us.
During college, I channeled this force into a total body conditioning class open to all fitness levels.
Now, Frizzly serves as the embodiment of who I become when I run. On the suggestion of an English teacher, I began running six years ago and, next to going vegan, I consider the decision to be one of the most important in my life.
Running is at once therapeutic, meditative, and fulfills a deep, intrinsic desire to compete.
To date, I’ve completed seven marathons. Below is a record of all races I’ve run. Personal records (PRs) are bolded and italicized.
