We are the professional runners of the New Jersey-New York Track Club here to answer all of your questions! Ask us anything!
My short bio: Hey Reddit! We are a group of professional runners for the New jersey-New York Track Club here to answer all your questions about all things running, training, racing, and anything else you’re curious about.
In addition to all of our athletes, the legendary Coach Frank Gagliano is also on hand to answer your questions. And to highlight just a few of our athletes we have:
Donn Cabral-2012 Olympian, 3k SC and NCAA Champion
Robby Andrews-2xNCAA Champion, 1:44/3:34
Ashley Higginson-2013 World Championship Qualifier, 3k SC
Russell Brown-3:51 Miler
Delilah Dicrescenzo-2x World XC Qualifier, World Champship Qualifier, 3k SC
Mike Rutt-World Indoor Track Finalist, 1:45 800m
In addition to these runners, we have multiple All-Americans, Team USA Representatives, Collegiate Record Holders, Penn Relays Winners, and much more! (http://njnytc.com/athletes.php) So you can ask questions directly, or generally.
This AMA is in support of our spring fundraising initiative. Unlike many teams at this level, we do not have a corporate shoe sponsor. We are 501(c)(3) Non-Profit and rely entirely on donations to keep our club up and running (pun intended). Many of our athletes jobs and/or school. If you are interested in supporting our clubs travel, living expenses, health care, therapy, training costs, and entry fees, it would be greatly appreciated.
