February 6, 2020
The Red Ledger: What is your sport, and how long have you done it?
Brady Laboret: I do cross country and track, and I’ve been doing it since 7th grade. I just do it as a high school sport.
TRL: What goals do you have for your college career?
BL: I want to continue getting faster and pushing myself, and maybe even becoming an all-american athlete which is the highest award you can achieve for running.
TRL: Would you ever consider going professional?
BL: I don’t know. I think that’s something I’ll have to figure out in college, if I want to do that or even if I’m good enough to do that. It is a very cutthroat and elite kind of thing.
TRL: How has running impacted your life?
BL: It’s definitely made me more disciplined, it’s taught me how to work hard and to push through hard workouts, hard times in my life, and made me a better person that way.
TRL: What is your best memory regarding this sport?
BL: Just the countless runs I’ve had with my friends, we all have something to talk about and something to share, and it’s really helped me become closer to people
TRL: Why did you choose this school?
BL: I’ve always loved the mountains, and it has a very well regarded cross country team, and I wanted to go there for the academics program as well. It just fit all the things I want, location, community is great, team culture is amazing, good running team, good school. It’s just perfect for me.
