What brought you to running club: I've been running since middle school and it has just always been my favorite thing to do! I went to community college before coming to MSU, and ran on their cross country team and was captain my second year. When I came here I obviously wanted to keep running so I was super pumped to find out I could not only run with friends, but race too!! Although my classes run too late for me to attend practice this semester, I hope to see and meet all of your smiling faces at the social events and races!
About Audrey: For certain reasons, I have an entire folder on my flash drive titled "Why Sharks are Cool". This past summer I had a Fisheries Management internship in South Dakota and one of my nicknames was "Lunch Box" due to how much I love eat! I also have a science communication twitter account I use to interact with other people in my field...but mostly it's for fish puns. I've also been inches away from a rattlesnake, and once jumped in a river to save a drowning pigeon!

What brought you to Running Club?: My senior year of high school, both of my cross country and track seasons ended off on horrible circumstances. Needless to say, I didn't hit any of my goals I set for those seasons and was not ready to give up running just yet. My sister, who had just graduated from MSU, told me that MSU had a running club, and I started to gain interest in it. I looked up the club, and seeing everything about actually helped me a little bit in deciding to go to MSU. The people, culture, and friends I've made are what keep me coming back day-in and day-out.
About Ryan: Mixed martial arts is my favorite sport and pretty much my passion in life. I don't miss a UFC event if I don't have to, and my one of my biggest life goals is to win a world championship.
I'm also a Dragon Ball Z/Dragon Ball Super mega-fan. Also the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe. I know the canon to all of those franchises by heart.
