Meet the Athlete: Alex Peterson

Jacob Stillman

How long have you been running track?

I ran all through middle school and then the winter of freshman year, school of freshman year and winter of sophomore year. In the winter it was with a different organization, and then I just got back into it this spring.

What do you like the most about track?

I like that there is competition. I like that if you want to perform your best you need to be in really good shape, and just running in general is a relaxing activity for sure.

Do you have a role model?

Steve Prefontaine

What events are you planning on running this year?

My main event was the 400, so I am going to go back to running that. Then probably, as I have been working out with the distance crew, run the 800 and maybe the mile.

What is your favorite track memory?

(At PSI, Christopher) Watkins, our gym teacher would only have a select four or five people, if one could not come for whatever reason, to come run in these track meets I was one of the people selected.

What are you looking forward to the most this track season?

Well since the last time I ran track was during sophomore year during the winter, I am looking to smash some (personal records).

Do you plan on running track past high school?

I would like to, but it would not be my number one priority. It is a great way to be  in shape and if I don’t run track I will find some other way to stay in shape.

What are you looking forward to the most this track season?

Well since the last time I ran track was during sophomore year during the winter, I am looking to smash some PRs.
