All About Me

On this page it will explain all about me

It says "PRE!" I was bored at a track meet so I decided to rake the sand pit.

Hey everyone my name is Joe and Im 18 Years old.  Im from Long Island, New York. I'm 5'10", 167lbs, with dirty blonde hair with one green eye and one brown. (Im a weirdo I guess or Im special, I think Im special). I was born with a heart problem and underwent surgeries and stuff when I was little, Im basically fixed now.  I just don't tell the doctors what I do anymore.

 I'm currently attending college in pursuit of a degree to become a pediatrics physician assistant.  I run winter and spring track for college. In high school I ran Cross Counrty in the fall, and winter and spring track. I may not be amazing at my events but I still take pride in my times.

Many people ask why Im so obsessed with Steve Prefontaine. It's really hard to explain but he gives me a lot of motivation and determination. I know this is sad but look at it this way. In my three years of running track and two years of cross country I didn't win a race, and I was teased for this, most people by then would've given up. But whenever I felt like giving up I thought about Prefontaine and what he would've done and that gave me and still does give me a motivational boost.
I also like to do other things such as listen to music, play music, help beginner runners, and follow the sport of running.  Hanging out with my friends is fun when Im blessed with the time.
