Advice to an athlete: Be willing to work hard for what you want. As said by elite marathoner, Josh Cox, “the pain of training is nothing like the pain of not reaching your potential.” Therefore, you should push your boundaries, live with no regrets and continuously ask yourself: “Did I do my part today?”

Inspiration: My coaches, past and present. Their support, dedication, and mentoring has made me the person I am. I aspire to follow in their footsteps and foster the love of athletics in future generations. Hope I’m making you proud in heaven, Coach Mac. (Dave MacArthur 1970-2006)
