6 Things About Me: Cydney Ross

  1. I’ve been hit by 2 cars in my life. I walked away from both accidents, scot free.

  2. In my senior year of high school, I dropped my 800 pr from 2:15 to 2:07.1 and burst onto the scene winning the 800 at the Junior National Championships.

  3. I’m originally from St. Louis, Missouri, which means I have a fondness for toasted ravioli, gooey butter cake, Ted Drewe’s frozen custard, and the Arch.

  4. In 2011, my heel was clipped in the NCAA 800m finals and I ran the last 250m with 1 shoe! I finished in 8th place, but there was no way I wasn’t finishing that race.

  5. I live in New Jersey where I train with the New Jersey*New York Track Club and under the famous (or infamous) Frank “Gags” Gagliano. I truly believe that I have the best training group and coach in the nation and I am so grateful for the opportunity that I have to represent NJ*NY.

  6. I ran my first mile ever during the indoor season this year. I rolled around in a ball writhing in pain for 15 minutes after the race, I’m hoping for a better experience this time around.
