Nathan Bickell

Nathan Bickell set his first PR when he broke 10 minutes in the mile at the age of five, but it would take until his junior year of high school before running displaced his dreams of playing center field for the Baltimore Orioles. Nathan competed for Annapolis High School in Maryland where he ran 4:30 for the mile because as Frank Shorter said “everyone ran a 4:30 mile in high school.” He continued on to Ithaca College where he qualified individually the Division III cross-country nationals in 2012 and ran every track event from the 800 to the 5k including a few forays into the steeplechase. Post collegiate, Nathan has run for Team Cricket (as in the discount cell phone company) in Dallas, TX, the Brooklyn Track Club in New York City, and now the Georgetown Running Club. With GRC Nathan hopes accomplish his longstanding goal of first breaking his college 5k PR and then going sub 15 minutes, and his new standing goal of reaching his potential in the marathon. Nathan is a recent graduate of Georgetown University Law Center and will be a law clerk for the honorable Judge James Crowell in the D.C. Superior Court. He lives in Washington D.C. with his wife Ariela.
