I think NAE is (understandably) trying to scrub their site of Jordan.
THE CRAZIEST “HOW I STARTED RUNNING” STORY EVER!
December 3, 2014 Athlete Blogs2005 World Youth Championships, California International Marathon, Jordan Chipangama
I’m sure many of you have been asked how did you get started in running. The pro athletes, especially, have to answer that question pretty much every time they give a talk or do a Q&A. This summer, Matt, Eric, Kellyn, Jordan and I were speaking to a group of high school runners from Corona Del Sol HS out of Phoenix. We started with some introductions and it was all the normal stuff. Matt and I started out playing soccer (and other sports) and then switched to running in high school. Kellyn was a gymnast before switching over. Eric started running on a youth team when he was in middle school. Nothing too earth-shattering. Hopefully the kids weren’t falling asleep. Then Jordan steps up and tells the story about how he got into running. None of us had ever heard him tell it before…and it blew our minds!
With the California International Marathon coming up this Sunday, where he is one of the pre-race favorites, we interviewed Jordan and had him share his story with everyone. Enjoy!
*Jordan is on schedule to become a U.S. citizen next fall. His 2:12:22 from this year’s Grandma’s Marathon would make him the 7th fastest American of 2014.
