Favorite quote: We run, not because we think it is doing us good, but because we enjoy it and we cannot help ourselves... The more restricted our society and work become, the more necessary it will be to find some outlet for this craving of freedom. No one can say, "You must not run faster than this, or jump higher than that. The human spirit is indomitable". - Sir Roger Banister (first man to run a sub 4:00 mile)
Famous relatives: Clint Barmes - MLB Shortstop
What did you want to be growing up: I always wanted to do something related with outer space, but that has changed quite a bit.

Person who pushes you or makes you better: My friend Blake Albright.. I ran with Blake all summer and I talk to him from time to time to see how he is running. He helped me progress to get so much better this summer, and was full of useful information that a freshman like me could use to not not "pull a freshman" in races.
