Nickname:  Curly (I've had the nickname since I was 3 years old). I used to have a lot of hair and it was really curly. I'm actually Ramiro Guillen III so my family gave me a nickname and I hated it. Of course it stuck. Everybody calls me Curly to this day, even my parents. 

Birthday:  April 26, 1982

Favorite movie:  "Without Limits". I've always been such a big Steve Prefontaine fan.

Proudest accomplishment: Qualifying for 2020 Olympic Trials Marathon at CIM after 6 years of blood, sweat, and tears. (Check it out.) 

Goals for 2018: I want to run under 14:30 for 5k, and 30:00 for 10k. I would also like to run low 1:05 for the half, and get the OTQ A Standard of 2:15:00 for the marathon.

Favorite rabbit gear and why:  I absolutely love the daisy dukes and welcome to the gun show. They are very comfortable, keep me cool, and of course I look great in them haha.
