After all that you accomplished, what drives you to continue running?

My drive comes from God. I know that I am blessed with a God-given talent and I owe it to Him to continue running until I become the best I can be.


How do you motivate yourself on days when you don't feel like running?

Again, my motivation comes from pleasing God. So even when I don't feel like running, I remind myself that I owe it to God to work my butt off day in and day out. 


On average, how many times and miles do you run a month?

I'm not one to count my mileage. But I run 6 times a week, sometimes twice a day. So I would say I run around 30 to 40 times a month. That includes track workouts and runs.


What's the weirdest or funniest thing that ever happened to you while running?

After my relay team won the 4x800 meters at the 2014 World Relays and set the American record, I did a celebratory dance. I didn't know it was on television. All of my friends and family members were texting me saying they liked my danced moves. I was slightly embarrassed.


What are your favorite types of fuel for running and why?

My favorite meal before race day is steak, mashed potatoes and broccoli.


What's your favorite cheat food & drink?

My favorite cheat food is a brownie and ice cream. I don't really have a favorite cheat drink.


Do you like ice baths? Why or why not?

Yes, I'm very big on ice baths. They help my legs feel recovered after a hard workout.


What's the most important tip you like to give new runners?

Don't compare yourself to anyone else. Everyone's journey is different. Just continue to keep your faith, work hard, and never, ever give up. There will be ups and downs. That's a part of life and definitely a part of track and field. But just continue to press on and remember to have fun.


What is your favorite running accomplishment so far?

When I won the 2014 Indoor World Championship. I became the first American to win a gold medal at a world championship event, indoor or outdoor, in the 800 meters.
