5 Things About Me: Morgan Uceny

  1. When I was younger, I worked for my Dad, who was a mason, so I spent summers carrying bricks and mortar. I was working on my tan and my muscles simultaneously.
  2. I brew my morning cup of joe via espresso machine, french press, percolator, or Chemex!
  3. I’ve gotten into rock climbing over the last year thanks to my boyfriend being a professional rock climber.
  4. My favorite country I’ve visited for racing is Switzerland.
  5. I quit cross country after my Sophomore year of High School because I wanted to focus on basketball.

North Carolina connection?
I never had a connection to North Carolina until I met my boyfriend, Shane Messer, who grew up in Fayetteville, NC. After the race, he is going to give me the locals tour!
