Quote Of The Day
“I never thought I would be at an NCAA championship. I remember freshman year, hearing of the NCAAs and watching them and thinking, ‘Those guys are insane, I don’t know how they do it.’ A few years later, I was there and running with those guys, some of the same guys I was watching a couple years before, thinking I would never be at their level. I really thank Mark [Wetmore] for that. … This last race can really impact my future. I’m trying to focus on doing the best I can. I’m hoping I don’t remember the race. That will be a sign that I went really hard. …”
