Why NJNYTC? Gags. I was put in touch with Gags through my high school coach who ran for him at Rutgers. After that Gags invited me to come watch a practice and grab lunch at a diner, never thought about running for any other club or coach since that day.
Greatest Strength: Leading the first rep of every workout and nailing the split.
Greatest Weakness: Ignoring when I need back off training or maybe skip a workout.
Favorite Gags Quote: Seriously? One quote. I would have to say right as we are about to begin an intense Friday workout he just yells “good long run tomorrow!!”
Role Model: My grandfather
Hobbies: Really playing any sport but my favorite is heading out on my boat for some water sports
One Run with Anyone: Bruce Springsteen. The boss has great music we all know that but I would like to question him on his early struggles and years of consistent refusal to never give up on his dreams.
