5 Things About Me: Yared Nuguse

  1. I studied biochemistry at the University of Notre Dame and eventually hope to attend dental school after retiring from running.
  2. I know very little about running, specifically other notable people in the sport. I’m just bad with names and never learned too much.
  3. I have a small pet tortoise named Tyro, full name Tyrosine (an amino acid I like). He loves eating and tries to nibble on fingers.
  4. Big fan of making art. I played violin for 10 years and have been getting back into drawing lately.
  5. I like playing video games, usually of the Nintendo variety.

5 Fast Questions

  1. What’s something people should add to their streaming queue? Shameless if you have a lot of time, definitely not for the kids though.
  2. What’s your favorite sport or sporting event outside of running? Fencing. Not a big sport guy in general but I fenced a couple years in middle school and just enjoy watching it.
  3. What’s your go-to pre-run meal or snack? An hour or so before I like fruit snacks or those Gatorade chews.
  4. Do you have any connections to Raleigh or North Carolina? I used to have a lot of flight connections in Charlotte. I kid, but not really many besides racing in Raleigh a couple times.
  5. One positive change I’ve seen in the sport in the past year is… more media outlets devoted to running (more podcasts, New Gen, etc).
