  • Meg Brown - Meg is a founding member of L2R. She has many marathons, half marathons, and 5Ks under her fuel belt. She will sing with you along the trail and generally help however she can to get you to the finish line. Her “Meg Hugs” are legendary and a favorite of every L2R participant.
  • Lisa Dillahunt – Lisa is a founding member of L2R. Lisa creates the training schedule, so if you love it, thank her, if you hate it Mary did it (see Mary’s bio below). Last year Lisa fulfilled a dream by qualifying for the Boston Marathon. Talk with her about her crazy lucky pre-race blueberry pancakes and Dairy Queen training plan!
  • Mary Kalec – Mary is a founding member of L2R. If you are having a bad day, Mary is sure to help you get out of the funk. She is also an accomplished marathoner, half marathoner, and triathlete. She also knows the quickest route to Dairy Queen in Worthington!
  • Krista Seibert – Krista is a founding member of L2R. She is our speed workout coach and there is a good reason for that … she is super speedy! She is a very accomplished full and half marathoner and has even won a couple of marathons! If you see a blur out on the track, that’s Krista. She will help you reach your speed goals this year.
  • Samantha Blackburn – Samantha is a four year L2R alumni and assistant coach. Samantha can not only help you realize your running and walking dreams, but she can also help you buy or sell a home. She is always ready for a road trip that involves a running event, because why should we ever just go on a vacation that doesn’t involve running? She has countless half marathons and a Half Ironman to her resume.
  • Marcia Slotnick – Marcia is a founding member of L2R and our head walk coach. She has a very giving heart and loves working with the charities with whom we work. She is very committed to our walking program and is excited to meet new people who are interested in endurance walking. She will be working with our walkers to set up training that is just right for them. Marcia has completed many half marathons and full marathons (yes, walking!).
  • Kim Daniel – Kim is a founding member of L2R. Kim is our head fundraising guru! If there is a crazy fundraising idea out there, she will know about it and help you meet your fundraising goals. She is also an incredibly fast walker. In fact, she placed 1st at the 2016 Columbus Half Marathon in the walking division. Kim also knows the directions to the local ice cream stores!
  • Amber Fosler – Amber is a founding member of L2R. Amber is our walk consultant. She is happy to work with any of our members on honing their walking skills or working on a walk/run plan. She is the proud mom of 3-year-old Elias, who you will likely see being pushed in a stroller at training. She is always happy to let someone else get in some strength/endurance training if they want to push him for a while.
  • David Garrity – David has over nine years of coaching experience and has coached hundreds of athletes for marathons, half marathons, and triathlons. Not only is he an experienced coach, but he is also an accomplished athlete, having completed many half and full marathons, four Ironman races and numerous half iron and shorter distance triathlons. 
  • Carolyn Knox - Carolyn is a four year L2R alum and new assistant coach. She loves to travel and often combines races with travel destinations. She hiked the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu last year. She has run numerous half marathons and three full marathons. Carolyn also completed a Half Ironman last year. She will be ready to help guide and encourage you in reaching your racing goals. 
  • Tracey King - Tracey is a two year L2R alum and new assistant triathlon coach. Tracey was a childhood athlete who competed in running and swimming up through high school as well as a nationally competing cyclist. Injury cut her out of the competitive world but in 2011 she made a comeback to running. In 2012, she started competing in triathlons. Tracey loves to encourage and inspire others to never say never and always push towards new goals. 
  • Kristi Aiken - Kristi is a current staff member at CRC and is excited to join the L2R group this season as an assistant coach. She has previous coaching experience in running and in other sports. Kristi is a huge proponent of cross training and is always willing to share her knowledge and experience. She is looking forward to helping others to achieve their goals and being a part of this wonderful group!
