A sophomore at CMC this year, Joel is passionate about running with the Stags and holds himself to high standards. When life gives him lemons, Joel thinks little of it and just loves to eat them. He always tries to shower at least five days before races, but it is unclear whether he showers in the non-competitive season. If he could pick any workout to do, it be 10x4x16 with 3/5s rest descending.  His ambition is evident as his dream run would be one that goes through “all 48 Continental US states, and allowed for him to stop for around 90 seconds in each”. Joel is the son of David and Nancy, whom he likens to Gucci Mane and Amy Winehouse. His inspiration to run stems from both his dislike of riding in the vans and his desire to keep juvenile diabetes at bay. Joel looks forward to improving his PR of 28:16.4 in the 8k this season.
