Sean spent most of his life in Lock Haven, Pennsylvania until he joined the Army in May 1996. Sean served three combat tours in Afghanistan as part of Operation Enduring Freedom during his 12 years as an infantry officer. After leaving active duty, Sean moved back to Pennsylvania and adopted a very unhealthy lifestyle. After seeing pictures of himself with his son, he was disgusted with himself and the fact that he weighed 233 pounds. In April 2010, Sean ran his first 5K with his trusty chocolate lab and fell in love with running. In April 2013, Sean became the Chapter Captain for Team Red, White, and Blue Lock Haven Williamsport. Team RWB is a non-profit designed to enrich the lives of America’s Veterans by connecting them to their communities through physical and social activities. Since Sean got back into running, he has lost 83 pounds and runs an average of 2 to 3 race per month, everything ranging from 5k’s to 50k’s. Sean loves running with his girlfriend Elisa. After struggling with PTSD and alcohol, Sean finally sought help and found that running was a major part of his recovery – physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Sean admits that the stigma of addiction kept him from recovery for quite some time. Sean has been advocating for veterans and a healthy lifestyle for several years and decided it was time to share his passions with people struggling with addiction. Exercise and surrounding himself with passionate, positive people has been extremely important in maintaining his sobriety.
