The personal home on the web of Ashton E. Thomas, Esquire, Author, Marathon Runner Extraordinaire!

I’ve been restless my entire adult life without a reason. This condition has led me down many avenues. I can honestly say that my journey has been fun. Learning is my passion.

I’ve been in private law practice for 30 years. I’ve been a municipal prosecutor for the City of Elizabeth for 23 years. I have litigated civil, criminal, and family matters. I’m admitted to practice before the US Supreme Court, the US 3rd Circuit, and the US District Court of New Jersey.

I enjoy practice, and I’m eager to serve you.

Running and Marathoning

In my mind, running is 50% physical preparation and 50% mental.  Before you start a race, you must make up your mind that you will finish the event. That commitment keeps you going when adversity strikes.

The following are some shots from recent half/marathons I’ve participated in:

NY Road Runners 2016

Besides running, my involvement with the New York Road Runners gives me a chance to play on the global stage. At the 2016 NYC Marathon expo, I met runners from all over the world; countries like Turkey, Chile, China, Japan, Germany, Israel, Brazil, Australia, Poland, and so many more… I even met the Olympic champion Meb Keflezighi!

Most recently, I had the pleasure of meeting Vito Antuofermo, who has appeared in Godfather 3 and the Sopranos!

More to come!

Ashton the Author

My father always told me, “Son, a picture is better than a 1000 words.” When I wrote my novel, I had the good fortune to collaborate with a talented artist, Orlando Murgado, who illustrated scenes from the story. I posted them for your enjoyment.
