About Frizzly

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 and pursue a career in medicine, 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.
