- NCAA XC qualifiers. A program, written in python, for determining which teams will make it to NCAA D1 XC national championships. Note THE PROGRAM COULD BE WRONG. I add in the season results, then update the regional results and run it to get a guess about the qualifiers. However, in case of B teams throughout the season that I'm not aware of, or many other unforeseen possibilities, it could screw up.
BioHigh School (Fall 2003 - Spring 2007): I went to Maumee High School in Maumee, Ohio, where I ran cross country and track. I ended up with PRs of 4:15 for the 1600m and 9:09 for the 3200m. My senior year I placed second in the state meet at 3200m behind Emil Heineking (which nemesis would continue to defeat me while at the University of Virginia).
College (Fall 2007 - Spring 2011): I had a really enjoyable time as a Duke Blue Devil with a great group of teammates, coached by Norm Ogilvie. In 2010 we placed 21st at the DI NCAA Championships in cross-country. Individually, in 2011 I qualified for the NCAA 10000m final in outdoor track, placing 21st. In my time at Duke, I was named COSIDA Academic All-America, 4-time All-ACC in cross-country, All-ACC in the indoor 5k, and twice ACC Male Scholar-Athlete of the Year (2010 Indoor Track and 2010 XC).
My college (and still current) PRs:
|Mile||4:06.84i||Va Tech Challenge||2010-02-19|
|10000m||29:14.65||NCAA D1 East Prelims||2011-05-26|
Post-collegiate: Sporadic training and racing; joined the Boston Athletic Association (BAA) in fall of 2014, competing on their team for the club cross-country national championships.
In fall 2015, I ran 1:04:50 for the half-marathon to qualify for the 2016 US Olympic Trials marathon on February 13, 2016. Unfortunately, I overheated and dropped out at mile 20 unable to continue. :( Since then I have been dealing with injuries but hoping to make progress toward a comeback.

Here's a screenshot of me in an ad for the Atlantic Coast Conference you may have seen if you watch much football or basketball:
