5 Things About Me: Donnie Cowart

  1. When playing red rover when I was young, I would pick two cute girls to run between. I’d intentionally not break through, so I got to hold their hands!
  2. My Kryptonite is cereal. Any kind. I can’t eat just one bowl. I have to eat a minimum of 3 bowls in one sitting.
  3. I used to get excited for that big growth spurt everyone told me would happen eventually… And then it never really happened.
  4. In elementary school, my sister used to outrun me in the mile all the time. But I was a monster at the flexed arm hang!
  5. I enjoy cooking for myself and others.

North Carolina Connection?
I live and train in Winston-Salem and own a kids running after school program called Crazy Running.
