Claire ran track and cross country in high school but took some time off during her undergraduate and doctorate training at Creighton University in Omaha, NE. Once returning back to Kansas City she recognized how much she missed running and got involved in some local running clubs, discovering the city and the great running community here! She has since competed in several local races and over the last few years has been working at breaking personal records at multiple distances. This next year Claire would like to continue to establish new PRs and attempt a marathon as she has not ran that distance since a backpacking trip in Italy in 2008.
