Former Colorado Buffalo and two-time national champion Ammar Moussa recently chatted with the CITIUS MAG Podcast ahead of his blue jeans mile run at the Sir Walter Miler on Aug. 4. Ammar is one of the first contributors to come on-board with the site and he’s developed a new kind of relationship with running since his competitive days on the track.
He was a standout at Arcadia High School in California before heading to Boulder to run under Mark Wetmore. As a Buffalo, he won two national titles and finished fifth overall at the 2015 NCAA Cross Country National Championships. He’s distanced himself from running a bit and now work in Washington D.C. with Rep. John Conyers Jr.
On the show, Ammar discusses his time running and training at Colorado, why anti-doping interests him as a topic to write about on the site and much more.
Colorado has a storied track and field history so Ammar tackles assembling a Mt. Rushmore of former Buffaloes.
