5 Things About Me: Eric Holt

  1. I’m a mental-health worker in Katonah, New York.
  2. I’m 6 feet tall and 174 pounds. A bit bigger than most distance runners.
  3. I can dunk a basketball.
  4. Although I lived in Carmel, NY most of my life, I was born in Hoffman Estates, Illinois. I visit Cook County, Illinois several times a year to hang out with my cousins.
  5. I attended Binghamton University, where I ran a 3:44 1500m and 4:00 mile. Never made NCAA’s. Since Graduating in 2018, I’ve run a 3:36 1500m and 3:56 mile.

5 Fast Questions

  1. What’s something people should add to their Netflix (or any streaming service) or Podcast queue? I would say the show Alone on Netflix, but also the anime Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure.
  2. What’s your favorite training shoe right now (or ever)? My favorite training shoe has got to be the Brooks Ghost.
  3. If you have to go fast food, what’s your go-to? I don’t really eat fast food, but if I must it would be Chipotle.
  4. Do you have any connections to Raleigh or North Carolina? I have fond memories of High School Nationals, where our Carmel team got 2nd in the DMR during my senior year in 2013.
  5. The sport of Track & Field would be more exciting (or better) if… they added a 4x800m to the Olympics and World championships.
