Enoch Nadler grew up in Florida in the small country town of Keystone Heights, located outside of Jacksonville. He attended KHHS, class of 2004, where he participated on the varsity track and cross country squad.
During his high school career he posted personal bests of 4:27 in the 1,600m, 9:27 for the 3,200m, and 15:37 in the 5k (XC). After high school Enoch took his talents to the University of Florida where he competed at the varsity level all four years.
While at UF Enoch posted bests of 4:09 in the mile, 8:15 in the 3,000m, 8:54 in the 3k steeplechase, 14:24 in the 5,000m, and 23:46 in the 8K (XC). Enoch made the all region and conference team on several occasions and competed in multiple SEC and NCAA championship meets. After a successful career at Florida Enoch took a 4 year hiatus from the sport not knowing if he would ever return to competitive running.
Then early in 2012 Enoch began to feel that he was ready to return to the sport he had loved for so many years. That March at the age of 26 Enoch made his return to competition and hasn’t looked back since. Enoch credits his wife Angela for giving him the passion and fire to return back to competitive running. And that without her love, support, and encouragement, he wouldn’t have been able to make the long tough road back to running.
Enoch currently lives and trains in Dallas, Teaxs with the support of his sponsors Trainelite.com, Source Organic Protein, PowerBar and Catalyst Spine & Sport. He trains with local elites Barnabas Kirui and Agustin Hernandez and is coached by himself and his friend, Florida teammate Matt Hensley.
Enoch has set his sights on achieving one of the greatest accomplishments for a distance runner, qualifying for the Olympic Marathon team. Since his return Enoch has been able to accomplish the following bests 5k: 14:26, 10k: 30:04, Half Marathon: 1:03:55. Enoch has won numerous races around Texas and the southeast. With several years before the 2016 games Enoch is excited to see just how far and fast he can push himself and if he can reach his goal for making the Olympic Marathon Trials and possibly the Olympic Team.
