"Dedication to the sport and perseverance pays off.  I was injured frequently in college, to the point where I got a sixth year of eligibility, but then I got injured again and couldn't use it.  But I wasn't done, I wanted to see what I could accomplish, stuck at it and was able to achieve things beyond my wildest dreams."

About Christo

  • Coach: Alex Gibby
  • Agent: Merhawi Keflezighi
  • Philanthropic involvement: Let me run
  • Training hurdles: Exercise induced asthma. It is usually controlled with medicine (not Advair) but it still affects me during workouts and races at times but it's just another hurdle to overcome. If you want it, go for it and don't let things stand in your way.
  • Favorite foods: Tortilla Wraps and Ice Cream
  • Hobbies: Things I can do sitting down and recovering. Hanging with friends, board games, computer games (yes, I have a little competitive spirit), and reading.
  • Favorite TV show: Castle, White Collar, Firefly
  • Favorite movie: Ocean's Eleven
  • Favorite place to compete: On the road. All that matters there is place, you being better, stronger, gutsier, wanting it more than the person next to you. The raw competitiveness is what draws me to it.
  • I most enjoy competing against: A worthy opponent
  • After competition indulgence: Pizza! I don't let myself eat it in the week leading up to a race as if I order a large pizza...well I tend to eat a large pizza and I've found that to be a less than optimal choice in race week.
  • Highschool PR: Mile: 4:08 | 2 Mile: 8:48
