6-time Individual Summit League Champion; 3-time Summit League Athlete of the Year; 5-time Team Summit League Champions in cross country.
My parents are Darci and Brad Olson. My sister, Sarah, is currently living in Antarctica.
One day my time as a competitive runner will come to an end. Contrarily, my choice to follow Christ will not. It is a relationship that will last an eternity. That choice was the most important decision of my life.
Growing up in Minnesota, Nordic skiing is always something I have enjoyed doing. Now, I like to use it as cross training early on in my builds to develop strength and low-impact aerobic strength. It's so fun I like to call it "free fitness."
