5 Things About Me: Vince Ciattei

  1. I eat basically the same thing for breakfast every day, the same thing for lunch every day, and could easily eat tacos for dinner every day.
  2. I paced this race in 2019 and was more nervous for pacing than almost any actual race.
  3. I have identical twin sisters Julia and Anna. As a young child, Anna always held a plastic orange and that was the only way for most people to tell them apart.
  4. My brother Christian is currently in Germany. I visited Europe once: my 3 race results were DFL 1500, DNF 800 and DNF 1500. Good times.
  5. The most recent book I’ve read is The Summer I Turned Pretty.

5 Fast Questions

  1. What’s something people should add to their Netflix (or any streaming service) or Podcast queue? This is a classic but if you haven’t already seen Narcos (or Narcos Mexico), watch it. Less well-known suggestion (maybe): The Bodyguard
  2. What’s your favorite training shoe right now (or ever)? Right now Pegasus 38. All-time Nike Zoom Elite 6.
  3. If you have to go fast food, what’s your go-to? Chick-Fil-A. There aren’t any in Eugene, which overall is probably a good thing for me.
  4. Do you have any connections to Raleigh or North Carolina? Not directly. Many of my former NJNYTC teammates are Wolfpackers and often made me an honorary member of the group! I also have lots of fond memories racing the Raleigh Relays in college.
  5. The sport of Track & Field would be more exciting (or better) if… It had a betting culture (i.e. horse racing or UFC) associated with it.
