Damon’s favorite events are the 800m run, 1600m, and the cross country 5k. In addition to the club, Damon is involved with Pre-Vet Club, Briggs Ambassadors, and St. John’s men’s group. His interests include ultimate frisbee, beach volleyball, dogs, and parties. Though Damon has not run competitively for a long time, he found his love for the sport of running during high school.
“When I was little, I was a very dedicated and hard-working soccer player. I continued playing up until junior year of high school when I was cut from the team. My coach said “maybe you should give cross country a try this year.” I was determined to last through just one season but eventually fell in love with the sport. I ran track my junior year as well and continued both until graduation. Even though I got into running later than most people, I have found a sport and a hobby that I enjoy doing every day of my life. I’ve met some great people and have made a name for myself throughout the years. My only regret is that I would have liked to find running much earlier.”
