The fact that I'm still enjoying running and getting much faster after college!
I started running in high school and continued on and off on the NC State club team, and am stoked to have moved to the PNW post-graduation. I joined club because I realized I can get much faster runner if I do higher quality, higher volume training with with people faster than me. So far I've set over 4 minutes' worth of PRs in 2 seasons. Keep the ball rolling.
My real passion is building up a strong team culture and I want to help my teammates achieve their competitive goals - especially the big, hard, long term goals that may or may not seem possible. I'm inspired by the level at which we as a club compete and the competitive standard we set, and I want to continue and grow that in the coming years.
