Bio: Drew has been running since the age of 15, competing in High School Cross-Country in his hometown of Canton, MI. Now a coach at the Middle School level, he is passing on that love of running to our youth. Over the years he’s run numerous Detroit Free Press International half and full Marathons, along with other local races with his wife and two boys. Within the last few years, he ran his first 50k and attempted his first 100 Mile race. With the help of his crew, he was able to persevere through injury at mile 48, making it 62 miles to qualify for a 100k finish. Sometimes things don’t go as planned, though you should always embrace doubt, or you’ll never know what you’re truly capable of. He cannot wait to make his return to Detroit this fall to run 26.2 miles, while helping others along the way in their journey.
