Bergfeld has been running and racing for more than 30 years. Bergfeld attended Webster Groves High School and used the summer Pace Series the St. Louis Track Club still hosts, to find her speed. Since those early days, Bergfeld has continued to run and compete as she and her husband moved from the Midwest to Boston to Texas and back to Boston, finally settling back in her hometown seven years ago. With age, Bergfeld has moved up in distance. She has now completed 25 marathons and several ultra distance events. Her claim to fame is winning the USATF 50k Trail Championships in 1996, held in Huntsville Texas. Still active and racing, Bergfeld now owns a yoga studio in Kirkwood, Metro Power Yoga, which naturally attracts a lot of runners to her classes.
