5 Things About Me: Charles Philibert-Thiboutot

  1. My first language is French.
  2. Before taking up running, my main sport was slopestyle skiing and I would direct and produce ski movies.
  3. I ran in college for my hometown University, Université Laval, in the Usport system, as I didn’t get recruted anywhere in Canada or the US.
  4. The best poutine in the world can be found in my hometown, Quebec city. Most poutines found outside the province isn’t worth it.
  5. Although Quebec City is my home, my favorite city in the world and running’s best kept secret is Vancouver, BC.

5 Fast Questions

  1. What’s something people should add to their Netflix (or any streaming service) or Podcast queue? True Detective season 1, The Sopranos or The Last Dance
  2. What’s your favorite training shoe right now (or ever)? New Balance RC 1400
  3. If you have to go fast food, what’s your go-to? McDonald’s.
  4. Do you have any connections to Raleigh or North Carolina? Quebecers love to drive down to North Carolina beaches (although I never did myself)
  5. The sport of Track & Field would be more exciting (or better) if… teams could be created, marketed and funded in a model that resembles more of cycling.
