Early life and education[edit]
Keflezighi and his family were refugees[2] from Eritrea, who came to the United States via Italy in 1987. He is one of ten children.[3]

He began running while a student at Roosevelt Middle School in San Diego, where he ran a 5:10 mile before going on to win both the 1600 meters and 3200 meters at the CIF California State Championships in 1994 for San Diego High School.[3][4][5] Keflezighi became a naturalized citizen of the United States in 1998[6] the same year in which he graduated from UCLA. While at UCLA Keflezighi received numerous All-American awards and other accolades.[7] He won four NCAA championships (the 5k and 10k outdoor and 5 k indoor)[8] during the 1996–97 season, including the cross-country title, spanning from the track and field season in the spring to the cross country season in the fall .[8]

Career[edit]
Keflezighi is a three-time national champion in cross country running, having won the USA Cross Country Championships in 2001, 2002 and 2009.[9]

His fastest times for some standard distances are 3:42.29 for 1500 m, set in 1998; 13:11.77 for 5000 m, set in 2000; 27:13.98 for 10,000 m, set in 2001 (an American record which stood until 2010);[10] and 2:08:37 for the marathon, set at the 2014 Boston Marathon.

On October 11, 2010, he released his autobiography, Run To Overcome, which was published by Tyndale House

I conflicted as to whether I want to watch this show or not.

On one hand, I find it hilarious and would love to laugh until I burst.

On the other hand, I don't feel like hiring private detective agencies to locate my sides after every episode.
