Hello 605 Fans,
My name is Connor Watley and I have recently started working for 605 Running Company. Well, what can I say? I guess that I have had a fairly normal life so far. I am 16 and going to be a sophomore at Sioux Falls Christian. I run Cross country, I do Oral Interp, and I am on student council. (That’s just the stuff I do in the fall) In the winter my life usually calms down a bit and I focus on winter conditioning for track. Then in the spring it’s straight off to actual track workouts and then the races. Finally we get to summer again where I start up training for Cross Country again. So I guess you could say I spend quite a bit of my life running. I’m not just into running though, I also go around on Sundays play either an electric guitar, an acoustic, or my ukulele for a praise team and worship group that I love being a part of. The band’s name is Happy the Dog. I am also very close with my family. I have two brothers. Chase who is 18 tried running for a short time but then took more of a liking to golf and tennis. My younger brother who is 13 just started getting into running this past year. He does track and cross country too. I’m Cousins with Grant, Paul, and Logan, but we usually see Grant quite often. Most people hate going to school but I actually enjoy it. There is such a good atmosphere at Sioux Falls Christian that it doesn’t feel all depressing and boring but instead it’s uplifting and a blessing to be surrounded by Christian students, teachers, coaches, and other athletes. Probably the whole reason that I got into running in the first place was that I was pretty bad at most other sports except I could run well and my older brother did it so why not give it a try, and now I just love it and have been hooked on it ever since.
