DURHAM, N.C. -  The Duke men's cross country team will return to action on October 27 at the ACC Championships in Blacksburg, Va.  Recently, GoDuke.com sat down with senior Dominick Robinson to learm more about the Gillette, Wyo., native. 

GoDuke.com: What has been your proudest moment at Duke?
Dominick Robinson:
Our team making it to nationals my freshman year.  It was the first time we made it there in a while.

GoDuke.com: What's your favorite spot on campus?
Probably the Link - best place to study.

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.

GoDuke.com: As a kid did you know what you wanted to be when you grew up and do you know what you want to be now?
I wanted to be a dentist growing up. Why?  I have no idea.  Then when I sort of learned things I wanted to be an engineer.

GoDuke.com: If you could choose anyone, who would you pick as your mentor?
Justin Timberlake because he wins at life.

GoDuke.com: What's one chore that you absolutely hate doing?
It would probably be dishes.  No one does them and I use paper plates and plastic utensils so I don't have to do dishes.  But I still do dishes because no one else does.

GoDuke.com: If you won the lottery, what is the first thing you would do?
 Start my own shoe line.

GoDuke.com: If you could be a superhero, what would you want your superpower to be?
Read minds.

GoDuke.com : Favorite midnight snack?
AB: Flaming-Hot Cheetos.  It's my favorite snack ever.

GoDuke.com:  What sport other than your own would you play?
I'd probably like to be good at basketball or cycling.

GoDuke.com: What's one possession you can't live without?
My running shoes.

GoDuke.com:  What's your favorite restaurant in Durham?
: Q-shack.
