5 Things About Me: Drew Hunter

  1. I have 8 siblings. Three adopted from China and two adopted from Haiti. We have quite the diverse family.
  2. I once met Mike Tyson during a layover in the San Francisco airport. He was a really nice guy.
  3. I recently read the book “Born To Run” by Christopher McDougall, and have decided that one day I will do an ultra race. Probably not for another 20 years, however…
  4. My favorite workout has to be anything involving hills. I really enjoy the feeling of running fast up a hill.
  5. The only two Netflix series I have completed are Dexter and Breaking Bad.

North Carolina connection?
