Paul Snyder

Meme-disparager, avid jogger, MS Paint artist, friend of Scott Olberding, Citius Mag staff writer based in Flagstaff. Supplying baseless opinions, lukewarm takes, and vaguely running-related content.

Former collegiate runner for University of Portland and Georgetown, currently a professional runner weighing sponsorship offers from no one. Enjoys using the internet to message Scott Olberding and Paul Snyder about bad story ideas. Does not assume he will work at Citius much longer due to the bad story ideas.

Once raced in a poodle shirt which may or may not be a shirt for a poodle. Unfortunately the type of person who does not let little kids win at competitive games. Often cries while running.

Who knows?

Mike Cassidy

A proud native of Staten Island, NY, Mike started running in high school, which is another way of saying he was too short for the basketball team. He once finished the NYC Marathon holding hands with Meb Keflezighi. This ranks as his second proudest running moment, after that time he broke 60 for the quarter. When he’s not running, Mike is a Scarlet Knight, both because he is pursuing his PhD in Economics at Rutgers and because his pale Irish skin is mightily susceptible to sunburn.
