Greatest Weakness: Not confident in my kicking abilities
Favorite Gags Quote: “You can brush your teeth every day, you can run everyday”
Role Model: As cliche as it sounds, I gravitated towards Prefontaine. Making races be about pure guts and grit has always hit home with me.
Hobbies: Outside of running, I enjoy other sports that involve running like soccer and basketball. But I like to balance all that out with xbox.
Running Idiosyncrasy: I didn’t do track in High School, I was a soccer kid.
