The former Villanova standout has had a great 2010 season.

With all eyes on the likes of Galen Rupp and Dathan Ritzenhein, one American standout may be getting overlooked: Bobby Curtis. Curtis has had a fantastic 2010 season, running 13:18 in the 5,000m and 27:33 in the 10,000m. Curtis, 28, is a graduate of Villanova University and is coached by fellow alumnus Nic Bideau. His most recent race was a success, placing third at the Zatopek 10K in Australia (28:08).

He was recently interviewed by the Web site, The Runner’s Tribe. In the interview, Curtis noted that his training leading up to the Zatopek 10K was “very good” and that he had done more miles than ever before (115). “I think if I can keep the miles up and freshen up with some speed work I’ll run very well in the next few months,” he said.

Curtis also shared the fact that he suffers from insomnia and that he has been trying various treatments like light therapy, restricted sleep therapy, yoga, and meditation.
