Roulette 1Thomas RouletteProfessor EichenbergerWriting the Sports Story5 February 2019About MeMy name is Thomas Roulette and I am a freshman nursing major at Adelphi University. Iam also an athlete on the cross country and track and field teams at Adelphi. I am mainly a dis-tance runner, but the events that I compete in range from the 400 meter to the 10,000 meter races.I have a 27-year-old sister who works as a Physician Assistant. My mom works as a manager inan insurance company and my dad works as an electrician for PSEG. I live in West Islip, NewYork and attended St. John the Baptist Diocesan High School. My favorite type of music is rap,and some of my favorite artists include Lil Wayne, J. Cole, Drake and Eminem. Growing up, Iplayed basketball and baseball until I reached high school. I did not start running until seventhgrade, and at the time my only option was cross country because there was no track team at myschool. I immediately fell in love with the sport and wanted to do everything I could to improve.
