My name is Polly and I’m 33 years old. I’ve been living in Seattle for the last three and a half years and I love this city with all my heart. Since 2008, I have been a runner. I have run a few 10k races, 2 half-marathons (Amsterdam, 2017; Cascade express, WA, 2021) and 2 marathons (Budapest, 2018; Seattle, 2021) with the Seattle 2021 marathon being a very special one.
I started running consistently in 2020 and since that time it has become a big part of my personal fitness journey and my professional life. I’ve never run as much as I run in Seattle, I adore the weather because you can run all year round. Some of my favorite routes are: Green Lake, Lake Union, and the Burke-Gilman Trail.
Last fall I was a Girl on The Run coach. It was a great experience and I’m excited to continue my running volunteer journey with the Seattle Marathon Association. The city has inspired me to run and now it’s my turn to inspire other people all over the world to start/boost/continue their running journey.
