Amy started running in 2001 at age 30 after her three kids were born. Originally she trained just to get into shape, jumping into a few 5/10k’s for fun. Her first marathon was in Portland, OR in 2002 and ever since she has been hooked on running long distances. Amy moved from Portland to St. Louis in 2011 where she enjoyed the team atmosphere, while being challenged by BR teammates to train for faster times. Her goals include trying some shorter/faster distances along the way to the number 1 goal of a sub-3 marathon.
On Sunday, May 16, 2021, Kirby Simon raced his first half marathon.
