5 Things About Me: Robby Andrews
- I ran 4:03.49 for the mile in high school and have dropped that time to 3:57.15 this year at the Adrian Martinez Classic, but am looking to improve!
- I grew up in Manalapan NJ (central NJ), if given the opportunity I will gladly explain why NJ is the best state in the country.
- My favorite animals are cats, I currently have 3 and they are all perfect.
- I attended the University of Virginia, and recently graduated this past December with a degree in Kinesiology. After I am done competing professionally I would love to become a teacher and share what I have learned with others.
- I am fortunate to have my dad, Bob Andrews, alongside most of my runs/workouts, he keeps me grounded and reminds of what is important in life (while still kicking my butt!).
