Pace Team Leader

Jo joined the Clif Bar Pace Team in 2006 and is now just a few marathons shy of reaching #100. While Jo brags about having the lowest weekly running miles among the pace leaders, that doesn't mean he isn't out getting his fitness on. A 10-time Ironman and hard-core cyclist when not marathoning, Jo has cycled across the U.S., the length of Japan, and from Canada to Mexico. Before he started running, Jo was a competitive bodybuilder and placed 5th in tri-state competition. He also broke the collegiate sit-up record with 5,700 in 24 hours.

Jo grew up in New York but needed bigger mountains and better weather so he packed up and headed out west. He currently resides in Los Angeles at the foothills of the Santa Monica mountains and considers himself a true So Cal boy (without the surfboard).
