Sean Hilsdon is civil engineer from Millington, TN who now lives in Southaven, MS with his wife April and two boys Mitchell and Garrett. He is an Eagle Scout that spent most of his youth in the outdoors and playing sports.
He got into outdoor running in early 2014 in an attempt to quit smoking, lose weight, reduce stress, and lead a more healthy lifestyle. He found accountability and friendship through running groups like the Desoto Runners Club and Full Motion Running & Cycling Shop, which held weekly group runs. From starting with his first 5k and now having several ultramarathons and triathlons under his belt, he owes all his success to God, family and friends. He is a member of the North Mississippi Endruance Multisport Team and is looing forward to a great year of racing in 2017.
he believes its a very fine balance between spending quality time with family and chasing down his athletic dreams, but hopes that it will motivate his family and friends to also strive for a better quality of life. His motto in life is try everything at least once and never quit under your own will!
