400m_matt-01Where are you from?

Born and raised in Baton Rouge, Louisiana!

When you aren’t running, what are you doing? What’s your day job?

I am Director of Custom Development and Marketing at Franklin | Data Empowered Direct Mail.

What is your best time at your favorite distance?

I love half marathons—my current PR is 1:37:24, though I’m hoping to break that soon!

What is your favorite part of the Louisiana Marathon course?

I love the run through Old Goodwood (miles 16 – 18). The trees and homes are beautiful, though I’m a bit partial since I live there!

What has been your favorite half or full marathon and why?

The 2007 New York City Marathon. It was just my second marathon, and I was overwhelmed with the crowd support and getting to run through all the boroughs. I’ll never forget it!

What is your bucket list race?

I would love to run the Athens Marathon one day—to see where it all began, and because I’m dying to go to Greece!

What is your pre-race meal of choice?

Tuna steak with a side of pasta—great protein that’s not too heavy, with some carbs in there for energy.
