5 Things About Me: Darius Terry

  1. When I was a freshmen in high school, I wanted to play football but my parents wouldn’t let me. Instead they told me I should do cross country. They mentioned something about me being too small for football (at the time I was 5’3″, 115 lbs). Still not sure if they were right about that.
  2. I have to be selective of my television time because I can binge watch TV all day. I have frequently watched full seasons of TV shows in a day.
  3. My nickname/instagram name “Sleepy D” comes from college. At Arizona State, we had 5:30am practice during the Fall due to the weather, so I was constantly tired and “Sleepy D” was born.
  4. I’ve been a lifelong LA Lakers fan (not a bandwagon) and they’re definitely winning the NBA Championship this upcoming season!
  5. I could eat pizza everyday and never get tired of it. But unfortunately I’m getting older, so that’s not an option, so I eat much healthier.

5 Fast Questions

  1. What’s your favorite cereal? Lucky Charms…They’re magically delicious!
  2. What makes a good running partner? Proper pacing in workouts and taking the easy days EASY.
  3. What’s your favorite post run beverage? Chocolate Milk
  4. Do you have any connections to Raleigh or North Carolina? None. This will be my first time in the State.
  5. If it wasn’t for running, I’d probably be… Who knows, possibly comedy. I joke around a lot, so maybe I would put more effort into that.
