Throughout the 2007-08 season, IUHOOSIERS.com will sit down and get to know the Indiana men's cross country team with a series of question and answer sessions called "Setting the Pace". Junior Timothy McLeod is first on the list.
If you could visit anywhere in the world, where would you go and why?
Prague, just because from all the pictures I've seen it looks like the quintessential old European City.
Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
The most auspicious scenario would be to marry an heiress and be her trophy husband.
What is your favorite childhood memory?
Exploring my father's 365-acre ostrich ranch for locations that seemed best suited to the construction of a fortress.
Something that many people don't know about you is:
I enjoy the musical stylings and situational comedy of Hannah Montana.
The teammate I most admire is who, and why?
It's a tie between Jacob Rich and Evan Bardach for their unending wells of compassionate understanding.
What class are you most looking forward to this semester?
Classical Drama is one for which I'm really excited. As an English major I'm constantly encountering classical allusions in literature, so reading the Athenian playwrights will help me better apprehend those thematic elements.
Who has been the biggest influence in your life so far?
It's hard to pinpoint one person, because I have been fortunate enough to have a multitude of role models throughout my life. The two most prominent figures, though, would have to be my parents.
What is your favorite food?
That would be a tie between Caesar salad and cake doughnuts.
What are your goals for this year?
Barring injuries and illness, I'd like to be top five in the Big Ten, and All-American at Cross Country Nationals.
