GoDuke.com: Talk about the first time you started running competitively or decided on cross country as a sport.
DR: It's when I was in middle school because I hated football and I was too chubby. I was overweight but I wasn't athletic and I saw my dad running every day. So I figured I should do that and I started off really bad because I was overweight. Then I probably grew half a foot and got skinny and got good at running and I figured that would be a great way to impress girls. And little did I know running is not the way to do it.
