Meet DelMo Athlete and Run Pacer, Deion Jones!
If you attended the 2019 MudHen Brewing Co Race Series, you might’ve seen Deion. He placed 1st in TWO races that weekend. Deion, in short, is just a 16 yo who just happened to stumble into running and never stopped.
1. What are your race goals for the 2020 season?
For the 2020 season, my only goal is to run sub 55 minutes for the broad street ten miler.
2. Best racing advice?
In a race, I think about how if I'm hurting, everyone around me is hurting just as much and I'm not going to be any better than them unless I can endure that pain for longer or simply more of it.
3. Favorite pre-race meal?
Before most of my races I have a half cup of oats and almond milk that gets left in the refrigerator overnight, we call these overnight oats.
4. What is your race mantra?
I don't believe in mantras
5. What activities do you enjoy in the off-season?
I run all year round and don't have any other hobbies.
6. Tell us three things we should know about you.
I am a very simple person and don't do much outside of going to school and running.
