We had an instant connection with Heidi when she called out “Running Lushes” while in the start corral of the Coyote Hills Trail 1/2 Marathon.  The friendship was solidified when we all celebrated the Silicon Valley 1/2 Marathon finish with a beer and she won the Instagram giveaway for finding the lush. Heidi is a teacher and toddler mom which is why she likes dark beer and to run….away.  Heidi’s favorite race is the the Surfer’s Path Half in Santa Cruz but you can also find her on the trails and doing the 26.2.  She’s an all around athlete with bootcamp, swimming, and rock climbing rounding out her training. She and Dani head up the East Bay Chapter and are fellow Represent Running Ambassadors!
