  • What are you passionate about? Boston sports
  • What would you do if you won the million dollars? I'd save and invest it.

  • Favorite place you have ever visited: Fenway Park
  • Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on the Race together: Staying under the radar and not rubbing the other teams the wrong way, and finding food that I like
  • What do you hope to accomplish by running the Race (other than winning one million bucks)? Jordan always wanted to be on the Race because it was his #1 dream in life. All I really want is to make it far enough so Jordan feels as if his dream is achieved
