Tyler is fast either indoor or outdoor — summer, spring, winter or fall. A member of a state championship 4×800-meter relay as a high schooler in Lakeville, Minn., Tyler was also a powerful Nordic skier for Lakeville North High. Now a sophomore middle distance and distance runner for the Princeton Tigers, he has run 1:54.34 in the 800 and 4:17.25 in the mile. After an injury-plagued freshman year, his sophomore campaign is off to a good start after setting bests of 25:13 for 8k and 8:30 for the indoor 3,000. He is also a student of the sport as demonstrated by his victory in the LetsRun.com world championships prediction contest. While Tyler has yet to decide on a major, he has narrowed his choices to either economics or chemistry.
