Adam played Division-I baseball at Bradley University prior to beginning his running career, and following graduation ran his first ever race (5km) near his hometown in the summer of 2009. It resulted in very bad cramps and a lot of pain, but fortunately it also came with a second-place age group medal! Once the pain subsided, Adam decided his racing days weren’t done and completed his first half marathon in 2011. A half marathon led to the Chicago Marathon in 2012, and his first ultramarathon in 2014. With each and every race, the question became “what else is my body capable of?” Three top-ten ultramarathon finishes later, the limits were nowhere close to being reached.
Driving down the coast of the Pan-American Highway in Chile during a 2015 RTW travel adventure with his wife, Adam decided that he wanted to run the highway from top to bottom. That idea eventually morphed and gained a lot of steam, resulting in the Guinness World Record attempt at stake.
