Nico Banks prefers a chocolate chip coconut Cliff Bar as his ideal post-race meal, though his favorite food is chicken casserole. The CMC freshman from Portland enjoys basketball and picking up Cold Play covers on his guitar. He's interested in pursuing economics and government and his spirit animal is a seal. He's run a 15:40 5k and 9:01 3k. His dream run is Fire Lane Tomb. "It's this really steep hill by my house, and after it rains it gets super muddy, and you can slide all the way down."
