My name is Emily Kearney. I am 17 years old and a senior at Seattle Preparatory High School. I am super pumped to be an ambassador for the 2020 Seattle Marathon! I have been running cross country since I was in kindergarten and was a varsity runner all throughout high school. The 2019 Seattle Marathon was my first ever marathon and I definitely caught the marathon bug!

I became inspired to run a marathon after tearing my ACL in 2018 while playing lacrosse. I was not able to run for nearly 8 months and so signing up for the Seattle Marathon was very nerve-racking. However, it was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Running a marathon has always been a goal of mine and as an ambassador I cannot wait to get out and inspire others to achieve their goals!
