Dawn Taussig
Dawn Taussig / Organizational Genius

She possesses organizational skills that would drive most men nuts. Dawn heads up a lot of the small details that are overlooked. With a degree in Recreation Management from Ohio University, she is in her element at the races. Out at our events, you’ll most often see her working registration or making sure the finish line area is running smoothly.  Dawn enjoys keeping in shape by training for full and half marathons and getting workouts in at Orange Theory.

Emma Doodles
Emma Doodles / The Quicker Picker Upper

What more can you say about this ball of lovable fur. She cleans the floors, the faces of small children, does product reviews, will chew test a dirty pair of running socks and has a bag of dog food delivered to the office every 6 weeks.  Her favorite event is waiting for the mailman to bring a treat. Her favorite distance is running to the nearest mud puddle or stagnate bit of water. She cross trains by digging holes in the yard.
