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)
Who is your role model: My role model is my grandfather. He is the one who always taught me to give it my all in every sport, and is a huge reason I am the person I am today
