Amelia Finishing Marine Corps Marathon

Joined Kingstowne Striders: 2013

About Amelia: After working in the thoroughbred racing industry for a decade, Amelia is now an office manager for a government contractor in Arlington. She began running in 2007-ish (...and down the stretch they come!) and has since completed two full marathons, five triathlons (two Olympics) and numerous half marathons. She moved to DC in 2011 and then to Alexandria in 2013 where she joined the Kingstowne Striders.

Favorite Race Experience: Knocking almost a half hour off my previous marathon time at the 2015 Marine Corps Marathon.

Favorite Race Medal: All my DC Ragnar medals (six and counting).

Unaccomplished Race Goal: Completing a Half Ironman or actually running the real Beat the Blerch marathon.
