Juli: I didn’t start running until college when I stopped playing soccer competitively. I ran my first full marathon in 2008, then took a break for about a year. Now I’ve got marathons and ultra-runs under my belt and I’ve found that I thrive when I’m sky racing. I’ve embraced the fact that I’ve converted from the road to the trails and enjoying my thrilling weekend adventures to the mountains.

Connor: Running has always been a big part of my life. I grew up running local 5ks and eventually began competing in cross country and track in high school and college. Now as a post collegiate, I run for the HOKA ONE ONE Aggies and travel across California racing in anything from 5k to half marathons. I enjoy learning about different training philosophies and finding ways to improve my overall fitness.

Will: I started running seriously in high school, and from there, for better or worse, running became an integral part of my life. I ran competitively, as well as for the sheer joy of it, through college and continue to do so with a post-collegiate club. It is an addiction that I am happy to enable. My top 3 reasons to run are: getting to spend more time outdoors on trails, getting to spend more time not-quite-but-pretty-close-to-naked, and eating. When I’m not running, working, or eating I’m probably somewhere outdoors and/or reading.
