Ryan has an impressive resume to date, including being a multiple time NCAA All-American, leading his college cross country team to a national championship, running for the USA at several world cross country championships, and much more. As a marathoner, his times continue to improve year after year, and his goal is to continue running at a very high level for many years to come.
