Running an ultramarathon isn’t easy, but then again neither is earning two masters in math, and yet somehow, Mr. Damseaux has managed to do both.

Mr. Damseaux counts himself lucky for all the fantastic math teachers he’s had over the years, starting with his 11th-grade precalculus teacher and lasting all through college. They taught Mr. Damseaux a valuable lesson, that even though “Lots of people see math as just a bunch of meaningless formulas,” he said, “What it really is is a way of logical thinking”

For the last 15 years, Mr. Damseaux has worked at City College High School in Baltimore,  where he loved his job, his coworkers, and his students. During that time Mr. Damseaux ran an ultramarathon (a 50-mile race), although he admits that being able to say he ran an ultramarathon is more fun than actually running it.

Despite all the fond memories Mr. Damseaux has of City College High he will admit that his last job was often high stress. However, “I haven’t felt any of that [stress] here,” he said. “[Wilde Lake] has been a very positive, welcoming place.”
