5 Things About Me: Sam Prakel

  1. I have four sisters, two older and two younger, and we all did cross country, swim team, and track at some point.
  2. I grew up in Indianapolis and am a Colts and Pacers fan (We had a golden doodle named Reggie after Reggie Miller).
  3. I played the trombone for eight years but am the least musically talented in my family.
  4. I live in Seattle, but don’t drink coffee.
  5. My favorite thing to eat post run is chocolate chip banana bread french toast (Thanks to Shalane’s cookbook and Katie Landwehr for the inspiration).

  3. What’s your favorite post run beverage? Any fruit smoothie
  4. Do you have any connections to Raleigh or North Carolina? No direct connections, but I’ve been to Bryson City, Winston-Salem, Greensboro, and Raleigh, and I loved eating at the Flying Biscuit Cafe.
