|Roni Teich's Bio|
|Update Bio for Roni Teich|
|MoCoRunning Forum Name:||ronaciousT|
|Sports:||I used to play soccer all the time, but I became a cross-country and track guy year-round when I started high school. I still play a little soccer once in a while.|
|Why Track/XC?:||I love running and racing (in cross-country moreso than track). I also have a lot of fun just hanging out with the team.|
|Competing Since:||I started running cross-country freshman year because I had always been one of the faster kids in my grade during middle school and I enjoyed running then.|
|Favorite Event:||The Cross-Country 5k.......and if I had to choose a track race I would say the Mile/1600m.|
|Proudest Accomplishments:||Winning the 2008 Maryland 4A Team State Cross-Country Title, as well as earning Regional, County, and Division Titles along the way. Placing in the top 10 at the county, region, and state meets was also incredible for me.|
|Memorable Moments:||The New York and Brentsville trips during cross-country are probably the most fun experiences I've ever had. The Penn Relays were also amazing, and my entire senior cross-country season is extremely memorable for me.|
|Hobbies/Interests:||Astronomy, video games (Super Smash Bros. and Rock Band, mainly), girls, books occasionally.|
"It's at the borders of pain and suffering that we separate the men from the boys." --Emil Zatopek
"If the furnace is hot enough, it will burn anything." --John Parker (Once a Runner)
"Somewhere in the world, someone is training when you are not. When you race him, he will win."
"Running is a lot like life. Only ten percent of it is exciting. Ninety percent of it is slog and drudge." --Dave Bedford, logged 200 mpw
"It is a paradox to say the human body has no 'limit.' There must be a limit to the speed at which men can run. I feel this may be around 3:30 for the mile. However, another paradox remains--if an athlete manages to run 3:30, another runner could be found to marginally improve on that time." --Sir Roger Bannister
"How did I know you ran a 4:30 mile in high school? That's easy. EVERYONE ran a 4:30 mile in high school." --Frank Shorter, circa 1969, quote preceding chapter 1 of "Once a Runner"
