Strangest food you’ve ever eaten: donut bank burger at fall festival. Favorite saying/quote: “To give anything less than your best is to sacrifice the gift.” - Steve Prefontaine. I also like one from Elf “I just like to smile, smiling’s my favorite!” - Elf Where you attended high school/grew up: Comstock Park, MI. Just north of Grand Rapids The tv program you are addicted to: The Office More about Adam: I met my wife, Traci, at the University of Evansville where I was recruited to run Cross Country. We both continued at UE for the DPT program and I worked with the cross country team as the assistant coach. I am now assistant coaching the cross country team at Jasper High School and love to work with runners through coaching and in the clinic. After graduation my wife and I were blessed with twin girls, Kinzie and Kylie and despite several medical issues they are healthy, strong and rambunctious. The girls enjoy playing with their baby dolls, watching princess movies, and walking our dog Perry (named after Perry the Platypus on the cartoon Phineas and Ferb so we could say “hey where’s Perry?”). We are expecting another baby in November! I enjoy running, traveling, and spending time with my family outside.
