Sid is originally from Baton Rouge, La. He moved to Augusta, Ga. with his mother and three of his brothers at the age of 10. In Georgia, he attended Lakeside High School where he eventually became a State Champion.
After college, Sid moved to Boulder, Co. to pursue a professional running career. He experienced a breakthrough year in 2018, winning the SACTOWN 10 Mile (47:46), the Mt Sac Relays 10,000 (28:32.06) and the Rock ‘n’ Roll San Jose Half Marathon (1:03:35). He joined HOKA NAZ Elite in January of 2019. In March, he set a new half marathon personal best (1:03:30) at the United Airlines NYC Half. In 2020, after a great training segment, he was forced to DNF at 19 miles of the Olympic Trials Marathon–suffering from back and hamstring issues after jumping over a fallen athlete early on. He returned to racing at the KT Tape St. George Showdown where he set a personal best at 5,000 meters. He then lowered that mark again, to 13:53.47, at the Sunset Tour meet in late August. In December, he set a personal best in the marathon of 2:14:28. He opened his 2021 campaign by winning the OTQ section of the 10,000 at the Texas Qualifier Meet.
A high school State Champion, Sid went to the University of Georgia and helped his team qualify for the NCAA Cross Country Championships during his freshman and sophomore years. During the middle of his college career he was plagued with injuries before bouncing back to have a big fifth year. That track season saw him set PRs at 3,000 meters (8:06.79), 5,000 meters (14:01.97) and 10,000 meters (29:08.11).
