5 Things About Me: Sean McGorty

  1. Ice cream is the way to my heart.
  2. I might have the best (worst?) half-tight tan line of all distance runners.
  3. I’ve had five different foot surgeries since 2017.
  4. I’ve never been to Taco Bell.
  5. I read all seven of Malcolm Gladwell’s books this year during our Flagstaff training camp.

5 Fast Questions

  1. What’s something people should add to their streaming queue? White Collar
  2. What’s your favorite sport or sporting event outside of running? Football. In a different world you’d find me as a WR1.
  3. What’s your go-to pre-run meal or snack? Quakers Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal with little PB and banana!
  4. Do you have any connections to Raleigh or North Carolina? I went to the Outer Banks every summer growing up. Both my parents went to UNC and my college coach is now at UNC. Plus Emily Pritt and Ryan Hill!
  5. One positive change I’ve seen in the sport in the past year is… I’m not going to lie, the New Gen Pizza night during Worlds was pretty sweet!
