Athlete Bios

Hey, Mighty Milers! Thanks for visiting the new addition to our website—the athlete bios. As you know “bio” stands for biography, which is a story of someone’s life. The runners we have included in this section are special for many reasons, but there’s one especially important reason: They support you! All of these athletes support Mighty Milers and New York Road Runners youth programs. All of them believe in you and in the positive changes that running can bring into your lives. Some of you will even receive certificates signed by these athletes as prizes— if you keep running and racking up all those miles. So while you’re reading the bios of these incredibly talented athletes we have included, know that you have earned their respect and admiration.
