Coach Kareen is a pre-kindergarten teacher who has been a recreational runner off and on for the past ten years.
Two and a half years ago when her youngest left for college she got more serious about her running and
decided to enter her first race, a 5K. Since then she’s run over 40 races, including numerous 5K and 10K as well as the Cherry Blossom 10-miler, the Army 10-miler, some half marathons and her very first marathon, the 2013 Marine Corps Marathon. She is a member of a local running group and enjoys supporting her fellow runners, especially the newbies who have not yet been bitten by the running bug!
Through her job as a pre-kindergarten teacher she enjoys teaching children the importance of good nutrition and staying healthy and fit. Kareen is also an RRCA certified running coach.
