As I carry on with the introduction of members for the 2020 US Olympic Trials Marathon Project I have been really encouraged with this community of runners that are part of the project. These runners are working hard towards qualifying for the 2020 US Olympic Trials Marathon and are doing so while balancing full-time jobs and all that life is throwing them.
If you are interested in all at helping these young runners get to the starting line of the 2020 US Olympic Trials Marathon on February 29th, 2020 in Atlanta, Georgia please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Help can come in many forms and all is appreciated!
Today I have the pleasure to introduce Chad Maloy. Chad ran and graduated from Canisius College in Buffalo, New York and has the pedigree to not only qualify for the 2020 US Olympic Trials Marathon, but to be a top-20 finisher as long as we get to that starting line healthy!
Personal best times:
14:17 (5000 meters), 23:51 (8000 meters, XC), 29:53 (10,000 meters)
Goal for 2018-2019:
Staying consistent and chipping away at the 2020 Olympic Trials Qualifying time.
Favorite thing about running:
Is the ability to push your limits to where so few have gone.
Reason for chasing this dream:
It will be the cherry on top of all the sacrifice, time, and love that has been put into this sport.
Favorite post-race meal:
There’s nothing like a couple of slices of pizza after a race.
Not really many superstitions, but I do have to eat oatmeal before every race.
Nothing beats a solid session on the hills.
Proudest running-related moment:
Taking down Notre Dame as a team for the top spot at the National Catholic Championships.
Current job, outside of running:
