5 People Meb Thinks You Should Follow On Twitter
You may not be able to run like Meb, but you can tweet like him.
No, you can’t run like Meb Keflezighi—at least not as far and as fast. But where your legs come up short, perhaps your thumbs can pick up the slack.
In honor of Wednesday’s Global Running Day, which has inspired hundreds of thousands of would-be runners to pledge a distance through social media, we thought we’d check in on the social media habits of one of our favorite runners.
Twitter will be abuzz with the #GlobalRunningDay hashtag (and #CompetitorGRD). And we’re guessing Keflezighi will fire off a Tweet or two.
Competitor had the opportunity to catch up with the four-time Olympian (2004 Marathon Silver Medal) and 2014 Boston Marathon winner last weekend before the Synchrony Financial Rock ‘n’ Roll San Diego Marathon where he filled us in on some of his favorite follows.
“I keep up with the news,” he said. “I like Haile Gebrselassie and Paul Tergat from Ethiopia and Kenya—Haile for inspiration—or [Eliud] Kipchoge. Those are probably the few I follow here and there, but I don’t have a lot of time.”
He continued, “I am more of a Twitter guy (as opposed to Instagram), so if I see anything interesting, I just click on them and see what has happened lately.”
Here are five of Meb’s favorite follows:
