Vince was born and raised in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. His running debut began in 2001 while stationed in the Marine Corps in Mount Clemens, Michigan, as a member of the Motor City Striders Running Club. There he participated in numerous events to gain knowledge of the running world. While traveling the world, Vince received transfer orders to Hampton Roads in 2005 where he was introduced to members of the Running Etc. team. In 2006 he was given an opportunity to join the Running Etc. staff. Although Vince enjoys mustering at the starting line of races with everyone, he also enjoys pacing events to motivate and encourage new runners to achieve their goals. Vince happily retired from the Marine Corps in 2016, and is enjoying this transition into civilian life with his Running, Etc. mentors and family. When he isn’t running, biking, swimming, or riding his motorcycle, Vince enjoys traveling with his wife, Rachel, and raising their blended family of young adults and teen daughters.
