Q and A with Jonathan

Why Dartmouth?

It has a great academic tradition and is also in a really nice location.  There are lots of great places to train around here, and I just felt that Dartmouth would be a really good fit for me.

How long have you been running cross country and what got you interested?

I've run cross country since my junior year in high school.  I started running cross country because I had had some success running on the track and thought that I would be able to carry that over to cross country.

Have you won any academic or cross country awards recently?

3rd team All-Northeast Region, 2008 Footlocker Cross Country meet

3rd at Massachusetts Division II State Championships

Interesting fact:

In high school I ate about 5 bowls of cereal per day.
