Why 110%?

I hate ice tubs. This innovative way helps take away the burning sensation from the ice. Favorite gear is Juggler Knickers because I can ice and fall asleep, twice the recovery!

Years in your sport?

14-15 years

Hours a week you train?

20-30 hrs

Favorite workout?

16 x 400 meters @ mile pace with 1 min rest. The worst pain ever, but makes me strong.

Favorite workout song/album?

When running: the sound of my own breath. When biking: upbeat house music like Zedd.

Athletic accomplishment you are most proud of?

Forever and for always would be the day I qualified for the 2012 London Olympics.

If you could go pro in any other sport, what'd it be?

Cycling or speed skating. I like to go fast!

Favorite way to spend a Sunday?

Nice bike ride with my wife to a Chicago beach and relax while eating burgers.

What's in your fridge right now?

Lots of leftovers. No wasting.

Three things we'd find in your gym bag:

another pair of running shoes, headphones, and gum.

Random fact about you:

I just turned 30 and I still get carded for rated R movies. (even whipped cream once)

How do you play harder?

When I workout, I don't leave anything on the table. I then have to rest hard...
