Meet the 2017 Team UC in the Westminster 10K

Andjelija J Headshot

Name: Andjelija Janicijevic

Campus: UC Berkeley, Class of 2016

Hometown: This is a tricky question for me... Belgrade?

Andjelija moved to London from San Francisco just this last January. She has previously lived in Serbia, Kazakhstan, Russia and Switzerland. She completed a Bachelor's in Psychology from UC Berkeley, where she also participated on the Lightweight Rowing team. Andjelija loves running - she's already completed 7 half marathons, and a handful of 5 &10ks. She finds it's an excellent way to discover a new city. Three fun facts about Andjelija: She knows countless random facts about UC Berkeley (she was once a campus tour guide!), she's an expert Jenga master, and she loves to stay up all night watching the Warriors.

What's your favorite...

Post-run snack? Carbs, carbs, carbs!  

Place to run in London?  I have yet to see enough of London to choose a favourite place, but the run from Highgate to Ally Pally with Team UC was incredibly beautiful. 

Playlist to run to? I've been all about Muse lately, but generally I'm a fan of any the Top 40 charts from 2000-2006.

Why did you choose to run with Team UC? I'm still very new to London, so it's a great way to meet new people, discover places I normally wouldn't go on my own, and feel like I have a piece of Berkeley with me here.

Do you have a personal best for the British 10K? Completion.

What are you looking forward to after you cross the finish line? The medal and the food.  

Anything else to share? Go Bears!
