Bio: Megan grew up playing soccer through high school, but didn’t start running seriously until after a cross-country move to Texas and later, Georgia. Leaving family and friends, she made the bold move to move her life to a different state to explore greater opportunities. After two soccer-related knee surgeries, running provided her both a way to explore her new home and stress relief. The stress relief grew into a passion and love for the sport. Megan has now completed nearly 90 half marathons and 8 full marathons with PRs of 1:50 and 4:19, respectively. Megan aims to encourage others to pursue their passions however scary they may be. She paces races a lot around Southern California, and enjoys encouraging and motivating others to push their own limits, whether for a PR or first-time half marathoner.
