Molly Huddle

As the third of four children, Molly Huddle grew up in Elmira, NY watching her father run. Huddle didn't start running herself until she was 12 years old and didn't begin taking it seriously until the end of high school. As a junior, Huddle lettered in soccer, basketball, and outdoor track. "My junior year, I improved a lot because I started to run over the summer instead of just during the season," says Huddle. Her senior year, Huddle decided to run cross country. Even though she was the only member of her high school's cross country team, that didn't stop Huddle from winning multiple state championships in the sport. As a one-runner team, her father coached her and she was undefeated her senior year.

In running or in life, I’ve found it really important to not shy away from races, workouts, exercises or experiences that I know I’m not great at or familiar with.
