The rabbitPRO Team
An important part of the rabbit mission is to support and grow our beloved sport in every way possible. The rabbitPRO team is a huge part of this work, providing us with the opportunity to partner with some of the very best runners in the nation as they pursue their dreams of greatness. In turn, our PROs not only represent rabbit at the highest levels of competition, they also provide us with the knowledge and expertise we need to fulfill the rest of our mission—making the best running apparel on Earth.
Our rabbitPROs are all amazing individuals. Supremely talented athletes, many of them are also raising families and pursuing impressive careers in science, business and academia. Needless to say, they inspire us every day! Read their profiles below to learn more about the amazing team of rabbitPROs.
Fun Facts: I’ve been a participant on two television shows and won them both: The Price is Right and Discovery Channel’s The Wheel!
Favorite Race Distance(s): 100-milers! But I love to run every distance and remind myself that they all hurt in different ways.
Proudest Accomplishment: Setting the Fastest Known Time on the Tahoe Rim Trail in 2020 and breaking Kilian Jornet’s 10-year-old record.
Goals for 2023-24: Win the Badwater 135 in 2024!
Favorite rabbit Gear: The Shredders for shorts because I carry my phone on most runs and love that I don’t need a belt, and EZ anything (SS, LS, Pullover, etc.) for tops because they are the softest and most comfortable running tops out there!

Favorite rabbit Gear: Everything EZ! So soft and cozy.
Goals for 2023-24: Still recovering from UTMB and thinking about what I want to do next! I'm currently registered for the 2024 Canyons 100k but I will definitely race something else before that.

Fun Facts: I was the kicker on my high school football team and my high school friends still call me by my nickname "kicker." I kicked as long as a 50 yard field goal in practice!
Favorite Race Distance(s): Whatever my next race is! I love racing everything from 5k to the marathon, and enjoy racing uphill trail races too.
Proudest Accomplishment: Qualifying for 4 straight Olympic Marathon trials
Goals for 2023-24: Top 10 finishes at the NYC Marathon and Olympic Marathon Trials

Proudest Accomplishment: Juggling running, working and parenting and still enjoying all of them while finding success.
Goals for 2023-24: Qualify for Western States 100
Favorite rabbit Gear: Perf tees because they are perfect for all temps; Speedsters because they keep a nagging hamstring injury feeling good; Performance undies because why not still be comfortable after the workout.
Fun Facts: My first trail/ultra race ever was 100 miles. (As a running coach, I wouldn't recommend this!). I found ultra/trail running in college through a series of interesting events that led to me doing a 10-day trek across Akshayuk Pass (Baffin Island) as a youth ambassador for the non-profit Impossible2Possible. - I believe in never passing up a carousel ride.
Favorite Race Distance(s): For an ultra runner, I actually have a blast using trail half marathons as tune-up races. Both the 50k and 50-mile distances have been good adventures in recent years, though I'm open to that changing in 2024.
Proudest Accomplishment: While I could list a race here, it doesn't quite feel right to me. I've faced quite a few learning opportunities in my running journey and I'm really proud of myself for growing through them. I'm so glad I see racing and myself as an athlete so differently than I did 10+ years ago. Running has never been more enjoyable to me than it is now.
Goals for 2023-24: The San Juan mountains have a special place in my heart, so I'm hoping to get a Hardrock Qualifier. Still deciding on some other goals. I also really enjoy exploring Colorado through summiting 14ers and have done ~40+, so my non-racing goals include doing the class 3 14ers I haven't done yet. Another goal I always have is to enjoy the journey as much as possible.
Favorite rabbit Gear: I'm often in the Steady State tank and Crop Hop in the warmer months, while also rotating through the Fuel n' Fly, Speed Leggy, and Summit Chasers. As the temps cool down, I'm loving the new EZ Pullover and EZ Joggers.
