Jeremy graduated from Miami University with a BA in Economics. His dad is a portfolio advisor in Cleveland, OH, his mom is a secretary in Darien, CT, and his little brother Grant is a freshman at University of Connecticut. His favorite movie is The Princess Bride, his favorite book is Flowers for Algernon, his favorite food is BBQ chicken wings, his favorite color is orange, and he likes dark beer and sweet wine.
Jeremy got into running when his parents forced him to take up a sport in the seventh grade; his best friend was going to run cross country because he came from a big running family, so Jeremy decided to join him. It was really difficult and he kind of hated it a lot, but stuck with it due to his innate stubbornness and the friendships he had made. When he got to high school he started putting in more effort and soon began to notice improvements. He began to feel better, both physically and from a self-confidence standpoint, and by the time he graduated, he was a pretty good runner and absolutely loved it! When he went to Miami, he looked for something to fill the void where his high school cross country and track team used to be so he joined the Miami Striders, where he served as President in his third and fourth years. While running cross country and track with the Striders, he began to train for and run marathons, culminating in the 2013 Boston Marathon, one of the absolute highlights of his running career so far. He's met almost all of his good friends through running and his life would be astronomically different right now had he never started running.
We asked Jeremy some fun questions, and his answers show his deep love of running!
