Spencer started his running career as a sprinter in order to spend more time with his soccer friends. After his soccer skills plateaued, his track coach convinced him to try out for the xc team, and he never looked back. Spencer ran at Amherst College, where he was a member of the first-ever Amherst xc team to reach the podium at NCAA DIII nationals. On the track he ran in multiple DIII championships in the DMR and 1500. Spencer works as a data scientist/software engineer. At GRC he hopes to run PRs on the track and try some road miles.
