400m_adam-01Where are you from?

Originally from Baton Rouge but currently living in New Orleans.

When you aren’t running, what are you doing? What’s your day job?

Right now I am in my last year at LSUHSC- Nurse anesthesia program. I’ll be graduating next May!

What is your best time at your favorite distance?

My best time for a half-marathon is 1:37.

What is your favorite part of the Louisiana Marathon course?

It has to be the LSU lakes. I have completed many miles running around those lakes, and they seem to never get boring.

What has been your favorite half or full marathon and why?

My favorite half has to be the Baton Rouge Beach half, it wasn’t my best time but it was my first one and the one I won’t forget.

What is your bucket list race?

I want to do the marathon down in Antarctica. Not many people get the opportunity to go to Antarctica let alone run a marathon on it.

What is your pre-race meal of choice?

Cinnamon swirl bread with some Nutella and banana along with a cup of coffee.

For people visiting Baton Rouge / Louisiana, what would be your top recommendation for what to do / eat / see?

Would definitely check out the USS Kidd, I like historical stuff. You can’t go wrong with some fish tacos from Zippy’s or sushi from Ichiban.
