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!
Name: Emily Vernon
Hometown: Festus, MO
Number of years running: 12 years
Favorite Distance to Run: 6 miles
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!
Best Running Accomplishment: Running through my whole pregnancy (including the morning that I went into labor later that evening). I now love running with my daughter in her stroller.
Advice to someone who is just starting to run: Take it 1 mile at a time
