Why NJNYTC? I was planning on moving to New Jersey or New York to find a girlfriend/wife and then I heard there was a track club here too so I joined.

Greatest Strength: I believe I'm pretty versatile. I can compete in virtually any sport. I'm much better than Travis Mahoney at everything from Tetris to golf.

Greatest Weakness: If I had a weakness, I definitely wouldn't post it here for the world to see.

Favorite Gags Quote: The morning after running 3:57 in my first race as part of NJNYTC I get a voicemail from Gag saying, “what are you doin, signin' autographs? Two college kids ran 3:53 in Washington, yea COLLEGE. You ran 3:57...They're gonna kick your ass!"

Running Idiosyncrasy: I don't know what that word means.
