5 Things About Me: Cory McGee

  1. My first ever track race was in Cairo, Egypt, where I faced girls from all over the Mediterranean region.
  2. I have three sisters who ran track as well, and we combine for over 50 Mississippi state titles.
  3. I love cooking southern food for friends, especially since moving to Boston. Specialities include shrimp and grits, and gumbo.
  4. If given a choice, I would pick 100 degrees and humid over a snow day. No question.
  5. I bleed orange and blue. Go Gators.

North Carolina Connection?
My closest connection to North Carolina is my family friends in Highlands. I have spent time in that beautiful town during my offseason. I have visited the state many times!
