After years of competing in multiple sports throughout high school and college, Jeff Shady left his competitive lifestyle to receive a Doctorate in Physical Therapy in order to help others reach their athletic and health goals. Once he became a practicing physical therapist, Jeff randomly received a free entry to a local, competitive OCR race and entered. His competitive drive rose to the surface after finishing his first race with a second place, podium finish. Since his first race, Jeff has qualified and competed in both the OCR World championships (OCRWC) and Spartan World Championships the last 3 years with highlights of 3rd and 5th place finishes in his age group at OCRWC. Jeff has high aspirations to return to the podium at this year’s World Championships!
