Why NJNYTC? Gags, because he lives to help his athletes succeed and he recognizes when you need tough love vs. a hug and cares about your happiness on and off the track. Killer training partners and friends make this club all the more special to me.

Greatest Strength: My ability to cross train and swim countless laps staring at the black line on the bottom of the pool… Not sure if I am proud of this one, but a skill that definitely comes in handy when injured.  

Greatest Weakness? My fibula.

Favorite Gags Quote: “Don’t rush sickness! Be smart even if you went to Villanova!!!! THE GAG”

Role Model: My big sister Nicole Schappert Tully.

Hobbies: Binge watching reality TV shows, telling jokes (especially when Nicole is around – she is an easy laugh), drinking coffee

Running Idiosyncrasy: Pre-race warm up is 17-18 minutes – 15 minutes is too short and 20 minutes is way too long.

One Run With Anyone: Al Roker
