Hello, my name is Brandon McBride. Growing up in Windsor, I always felt that I was different from the other kids around me, because I was a dreamer. I started my journey in athletics playing basketball. Basketball to me was always an attractive option but I knew deep down inside it wouldn’t work out in long run. Track, on the other hand, was intriguing for me. I loved running before I even knew that there was this thing called competition. When I was younger, all my friends lived 1-2 miles away. As an 11 year- old, I have vivid memories of running to see my friends, and then running back home so I wouldn’t break my curfew. Running became like second nature to me.
I have always been the type of person that believed with hard work, dedication, and smart decisions, anything was possible. By the time I finish my running career, I have a goal to have as many kids from my hometown as possible believe that they can accomplish anything they set their minds to do. I want them to think that if Brandon McBride can do it, so can they.
Remember I said I was a dreamer? As a child, I also had dreams and aspirations of becoming a D-1 athlete. I was fortunate to realize those dreams as a two-time NCAA champion at Mississippi State University. After that, I turned professional with Adidas.
I use NOW® products every day. They have such a wide selection of supplements that help support me in every aspect of my training and my active lifestyle.
