Meet the 2015 Competitors: Kyle Merber

Kyle Merber | Men’s Elite Mile | Team USA

Kyle Merber has got quite the social media presence, and he’s got the running resume to back it up. He brings a 3:54.76 personal best to Raleigh, but before that, he’ll be competing for Team USA in the Pan Am Games. He’ll run the 1500 meters (prelims) at 12:30 Thursday (7/23). You can watch it here (use HOLA). He’s also putting on a race of his own later this Summer (see below). He DOES NOT know LeBron James.
