Gordon’s story of endurance sports is one of overcoming personal health challenges. After running 3 marathons in 2012, he was diagnosed with partial complex seizures in 2013. His competing days nearly came to an end. However, since then, he has battled back and passed his previous accomplishments through dietary and spiritual disciplines.
Gordon’s accomplishments include being a 2019 and 2021 Boston Marathon Qualifier, winner of the 12.12.12 Marathon, winner of the 2019 Rock the River Run, numerous winners of his age group, and he is a 22 Time Marathoner.
And while many 2020 races were canceled, Gordon was still able to compete. He was the founding runner of the Ruyts Foundation 22k, placed 2nd in Fredericksburg’s Fastest Mile, completed the virtual Marine Corps Half-Marathon, placed 4th in his age group in the Blue Gray Half-Marathon, and completed the Richmond Marathon for the 7th time.
Scheduled races for 2021 are the Chesapeake Strider’s Marathon and this year’s Boston Marathon if its run!
