In December 2015, he placed first in the World 50k Champion, which took place in Doha, Qatar. “Winning with the USA on my chest has meant so much to me. Representing our country is something I will never take for granted and I feel blessed that it turned out so well for me,” said Tony.

After winning a world title at the 50k distance, Tony now has the opportunity to defend his title. In November 2016, Tony will travel back to Doha, Qatar with the goal of winning and doing his best again for Team USA.

Tony loves NuGo bars because they are healthy and quick, and his favorite NuGo bar is the Dark Chocolate Pretzel. “When you need some fast substance in your body after a hard workout, or you are just on the go, NuGo bars are a great choice,” explained Tony.

Outside of running, Tony likes to play basketball, play cards, watch sports, and go out to dinner with his girlfriend. Follow Tony's progress on Twitter and on his blog.
