|High School:||Thacher School|
Andrew Atwong started running as a high school sophomore at the Thacher School in Ojai, California. He attributes his coach, Derf, and the stunning scenery of the Ojai Valley as his motivations for sticking with the sport. Andrew’s favorite runs are through rolling hills and snowy places. He also enjoys running with the team up Glendora Ridge, especially at sunrise. While not running he enjoys skiing, volleyball, and playing piano. His secret to success is that he races in toe socks.
