Sports Background: Molly has been running since she was eight years old. Never the fastest one on the team, but always one of the most enthusiastic, she ran cross country and track throughout elementary, middle, and high school. While a freshman in college in Manhattan, she saw television coverage of the New York City Marathon for the first time. Two years later she toed the line of that race with 35,000 other runners and has been hooked on endurance sports ever since. She has run eighteen marathons to date, with one win, a few other podium finishes, a large number of Boston qualifying times and a smile on my face every time. In 2008, she completed her first triathlon. Since then she has moved up through the amateur ranks, qualified for several World Championship races and earned her elite card allowing her to race as a professional triathlete. She is a USAT Level 1 certified coach and she teaches Health and P.E. when she isn’t coaching amazing triathletes and runners.
