MY BADASS RUNNING BUDDIES: EMILY VERNON

I’m so excited to introduce you to another one of my Badass Running Buddies!  Emily is another local-to-me runner who I have gotten to know through the online running community.  She is also a fellow mama and I am SO impressed by her love + dedication to the sport of running!  Check out Emily’s running bio below!

Hometown:  Festus, MO

Occupation: Momma

Number of years running:  12 years

Favorite or Most Memorable Race: Last year when I was pregnant, I ran the KY bluegrass race. It was beautiful and this was also the race I found out we were having a daughter!
