Who is your greatest inspiration and why? Meb Keflezighi – he’s a fierce competitor who gets the job done on the big stage, always rising to the occasion when it counts. He’s also a super nice guy, down to earth, and a great ambassador for the sport.
First or favorite Olympic memory: Watching the 2008 Track & Field Olympic Trials in Eugene, Oregon with my brother, Brendan. We road-tripped from Davis to Eugene to watch the Trials, and that’s where the goal of running in the Trials myself first took hold.
