5 Things About Me: John Reniewicki
- My dad has coached high school track for 30+ years. I started running in grade school so I could participate in his annual pancake breakfast run where his team would run to our family’s home for a big breakfast. Pancakes are still a big part of my running.
- Top 3 movies: Master and Commander; The Right Stuff; The Italian Job. Can’t pick one.
- I’ve been to the bottom of the Grand Canyon 8 times.
- During the pandemic my Coach, Cory Leslie, and I drove 58 hours back and forth across the country. On the same trip he ran 100 miles in a week. We still get along well.
- My proudest athletic achievement is beating swimming legend Ethan Reniewicki head to head in a 50m Free.
