5 Fast Questions
- What’s something people should add to their Netflix (or any streaming service) or Podcast queue? Formula 1: Drive to Survive. I’m not a loyal follower of F1, but I like the personalities and racing aspect of the show. Maybe a similar series for T&F could be made?
- What’s your favorite training shoe right now (or ever)? The adidas Solarboost 19. I’ve put more miles on this shoe the past 2 years than any other shoe ever before.
- If you have to go fast food, what’s your go-to? Wendy’s. I’m a proud Wendy’s High School Heisman winner and love a baconator, fries, and frosty after a race.
- Do you have any connections to Raleigh or North Carolina? Just being a 2x Sir Walter alum
- The sport of Track & Field would be more exciting (or better) if… there were betting odds for every race.
