Although she ran occasionally in college, running didn’t become a passion for Sarah until moving to sunny California from the East coast in 2012. A lover of distance running, Sarah has completed several marathons and ultra-marathons, most recently the Canyons 100k and Boston Marathon. Like most ultra-runners, her dream is to one day toe the line at Western States! In her free time, Sarah loves to draw, spend time with her two dogs, and find great places to run (and eat!) in the area.
Reed has been running since 2010 and has considered himself a running nerd since 2012 when his Cal Poly SLO teammates began endlessly talking about the 2012 Olympic Trials. He focused on track and cross country in college and then transitioned to longer road races. He currently dabbles in ultramarathons and plans to eventually race the Western States 100 Mile Endurance Run. He hopes that his nerdiness can serve a greater purpose to the running community at large. Aside from running, he enjoys backyard sports and games such as cornhole, ping pong, and pool.
After spending most of his career in the finance and investment management industry, Leon decided to combine his lifelong enjoyment of running with his business experience to help build a top-class run specialty retail store to serve the beautiful community in which he and his family have lived for well over a decade. His passion for running developed early on in life, first as a competitive soccer player and later as an avid runner on the scenic trails and roads in the Gold Country area. When he is not helping others in the store with their running needs or running himself, Leon enjoys cooking traditional Armenian food for his family. He is married and has three wonderful children.
Although always an active person, Dan acquired a passion for running later in life. When his son was diagnosed with Leukemia at five years old, Dan and his wife, Audrey, joined Team in Training, an organization dedicated to training first time marathoners who raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. After completing the marathon, Dan was hooked! He stayed on with Team in Training for two more seasons serving as a mentor to new marathon trainees. He hasn’t stopped running since and his enthusiasm for helping new runners continues. Besides running, Dan likes to be outdoors hiking with his family and dogs.
Bree was born and raised in Northern California and started running when she joined her elementary school’s run club in fourth grade. She was on the cross country team throughout high school, but switched to competing in triathlons during college, eventually becoming the club president. Her passion for running shoes was sparked when she began working at a running store in college, and she hasn’t stopped obsessing over running shoes since. She has completed a few road marathons and is making the switch to trail running, with her first ultramarathon this year. In her free time, Bree loves to curl up with a good book or new TV show.
