Ellie Pell played team sports in high school then really took up running when she accidentally won a half marathon a few years ago. Since then, she’s lowered her marathon PR to 2:41, finished third at the competitive JFK50, earned a ton of attention with an outright win at a trail 50k, and most recently–just last weekend–ran in the Olympic Trials for the marathon.
Ellie’s stoke level is on HIGH and you’ll hear her smile through your headset. She met a ton of runners in Atlanta, ran with joy and no pressure, grabbed a free pair of shoes that might pay for her next vacation, and now has her sights set on Lake Sonoma 50 miler next month. And hey Saucony, you hearing this???
Anyone going to Lake Sonoma wanna go halfsies on my AirBnB? Retweet to save the planet 🌎— Ellie Pell 🦌📚🤙🏽 (@gazzellie) March 4, 2020
