5 Things About Me: Cristian Soratos

  1. I currently run and train out of Bozeman, Montana, where I went to college at Montana State University, but I am originally from Central Coast, California, from a town called Salinas. Salas por vida! Yes I am Mexican, not Italian.
  2. It was never actually a goal of mine growing up to be a professional runner. I ran because I made friends on the team and enjoyed getting better at the sport. That progress eventually lead me to where I am today. God’s Plan.
  3. I’ve probably eaten at Qdoba 30-40 times this year so far. I’m obsessed with their spicy queso. It’s also better than Chipotle don’t @ me.
  4. In my spare time I like to make mixes and DJ, play basketball, and stream fortnite live on twitch at You’ll really see how weird I am if you watch my stream.
  5. I’ve written 2 full rap songs but have never actually performed them in public for anyone. I get stage fright. Ironic huh?
