Featured Miler - joe bilello
Member: Joe Bilello
Nickname: Joe B
Number of years as a Miler: 12 years. Started running with group in 2005. (wow time flies!)
Who introduced you to the Milers: Matt Battin. One of the original members
Running Pet Peeve: When people blow snot rockets. Use a tissue Joe Z!
Most embarrassing running moment: In a trail race I accidentally ran off course and about 30 other people followed me.
Favorite race distance: Half marathon.
Ideal running temperature: 65 degrees and sunny. I like it a little warmer.
Most number of words spoken in a morning run: 5 (“please don’t talk to me”)
What do you do for a living: Sales & Marketing for GlaxoSmithKline Vaccines
Food weakness: French Fries and Potato Chips….oh wait, does Vodka count as food? If so, I change my answer to that.
Favorite movie / TV series: This changes on a regular basis, but right now I’m into the Walking Dead. This show is so disturbing but I can’t stop watching it.
Dream vacation spot: I would love to visit Italy where my ancestors are from. So much history, culture, food, wine, and hot Italian girls.
Celebrity crush: Mila Kunis (That 70s show) Just look at her…seriously?!!
People say you look like: I’ve been told on a few occasions that I look like Jason Bateman – actually just this week someone told me that. Maybe if I had a little less gray hair!
Dream person to meet: I realize this is not deep at all, but I would love to hang out with Bill Murray. What a trip that would be!
Favorite hair product: Ok. Odd question but Paul Mitchell Clean Cut.
Secret hidden talent: I am really good at finding deals on the internet. I never pay retail for anything.
Favorite restaurant: I seem to end up at Farm and Fisherman in Cherry Hill quite a bit. Love having dinner at the bar.
Favorite sport / team: I’m not a huge sports guy. I like watching the Tour De France every summer. These guys suffer more than any other athlete there is. 3 weeks of hard core cycling through mountains day after day. Much respect!
Future running goal: I can honestly say the Milers have helped me surpass every expectation I’ve ever had of myself in running.
