5.) Personal Information

-Why did you choose RogueAC?

I chose rogue AC because i love the close knit team and the active community. Everyone on the team has something to prove.  Oh and that Steve Sisson guy is kind of a badass..

-What is your least favorite band?

Maroon 5. Adam Levine sounds like a drowning hamster.

– Favorite post-run food

Donuts and chocolate milk!

– Favorite workout

A special variation of the Michigan track workout. 2000, 1600, 1200, 800, 400 with a fast mile recovery in between each interval.

– Heads or Tails?

Tails, because it wins 70% of the time, every time.

– Who is the most influential or inspirational person in your running? Why?

Pete Julian. Not only was Pete one of the hardest working distance runners of his era, but he recently overcame cancer. His outlook on the world changed after defeating cancer as he now lives a healthier, better life. He changed my life not only as a runner but as an individual. He taught me that in order to be successful in running and in the real world you need to live each day like a champion, take chances, and to accept nothing but success.

– Dream job after running

Division 1 collegiate track coach, or the president of the United States of America. Go big or go home.

– Favorite movie

Top Gun
