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: I am most proud of my half marathon performance back in January 2016 in Houston. Although I missed qualifying for the Olympic Trials by 1:49 I remember being super stoked during the race because I was only 10 seconds off my 10k PR from 2002 and still had another 7 miles to go! I improved my half PR by almost two minutes. It is very humbling to PR by a big chunk but still be so far off the goal. This made me want to get right back into training and shoot for the next goal.
Goals for 2017: I really want to PR in the 5k, 10k, half and full marathons. I just turned 34 and I feel like my fastest times are still ahead.
Favorite rabbit gear and why: I absolutely love the Daisy Duke shorts and Welcome To The gun Show tops. They are very comfortable, keep me cool, and of course I look great in them haha.
