Hello my name is Henry Ward and I are originally from Boston, and currently live in Tempe Arizona. I have a wonderful wife and son who is 7 and enjoy spending time with them. I run when I can, and I run to survive. I am an ultrarunner who is in recovery from alcohol and drugs (10years) who found running in May 2013, and found that it has been crucial in my recovery and maintenance for my addiction. I started running 5ks and quickly escalated up to the marathon distance. Then I heard of ultra marathons. I have ran a few 50 milers, 100 milers and a stage race in Patagonia 155 miles. I have ran over 100 miles many more times in my own. I have done the Boston Marathon Quad which is the marathon course 4 consecutive times and official marathon being number 4, and done this 3 years in a row. 2020 will be #4.
I qualified for Boston Marathon at the 2018 Phoenix Marathon. I liked the course so much, that in 2019 I created the 1st ever Phoenix Mesa marathon Quad which is the marathon course 4 consecutive times and official marathon being number 4! I will be doing the same thing in 2020 and hope to keep the tradition going! I am also qualified for Boston 2020 and will be doing the #bostonquad2020.
I hope you can join me for a few miles during either or both of the quads, I can always use some company!
