William Biancucci - DWRunning

DWRunning Tenure:

Joined in July 2015

PRs:

400m: 0:56, 800m: 2:06, 1600m: 4:43, 5k: 17:08, 8k: 32:32, 10k: 39:38, 10M: 1:07:10, Half Marathon: 1:27:03, Marathon: 3:14:31

Primary Focus:

Half Marathon

Proudest PR:

4:43 mile. Even though I ran this in high school, it took me 3 years of consistent training and many failed attempts of breaking through the 5 minute "wall".

"If I didn't run, I...":

Wouldn't be myself. Once a runner, always a runner.

Inspiration:

My DWRunning teammates and running friends inspire me for their discipline, commitment to self-improvement and to achieving their goals. Professional runners like Meb Keflezighi and Deena Kastor who are running strong and breaking masters records at 40 and 42 also inspire me and help me see running as a life-long journey.

Guiding Quote:

"Don't dream of winning, train for it." - Mo Farah

Most Memorable Run:

Running through Rome at 6am from St. Peter's square to the Colosseum and back and randomly running into Italian runners who gave me a mini-tour of some hidden spots in the city before parting ways.

Favorite Part of Being a DWRunner:

Teammates are awesome, inspiring, supportive and funny! I love the positive energy of the team.

Favorite UA Product:

I love the Speedform Gemini shoes! They're super comfortable and I ran my personal best marathon in them after only about a week after trying them out.
