Emily Odle

Bio:
Hi! I’m Emily, you can usually find me in downtown Columbus with my dog, Bodhi, friends, and my fiancé, Pat, sharing laughs over a great cup of coffee or a pint of beer. When I’m not running, I’m reading or rewatching Friends for the seventh time. I’m From Indianapolis, IN and attended Southport High School, Indiana University and the University of Indianapolis.
I started running when I was ten, it is one of my favorite hobbies and communities and I hope to a lifelong runner! I find that I run best (and enjoy it the most!) when running is balanced with other aspects of life. Race results pale in comparison to the friendships you make along the way, to the family members who have driven across the country to support you, or to the things you usually learn about yourself during those tough, lonely miles.
PRs:
5k: 17:10
10k: 36:11
Half Marathon: 83:28 (?)
Goals for 2018: 
 I am going to race my first marathon in May at the Pittsburgh Marathon and I am dedicated to building a solid foundation for Pittsburgh and future marathon racing/goals! This year I’ll be focusing on getting my mileage back up and introducing a consistent lifting regiment into my weekly schedule.
I’m From Indianapolis, IN and attended Southport High School, Indiana University and the University of Indianapolis.
