I am a proud Indianapolis native truly “living the dream” of serving my hometown as a morning news anchor on WISH-TV, News 8. When not on-air, I am found training with my Jordan YMCA MultiFit teammates for the next triathlon or running race.

I’m a stay at home mom from Michigan to my 4-year-old son! I’ve been a runner for 10 years, this November I’m running my 3rd Monumental race and my 10th marathon!

I am from Northern Michigan and currently live with my husband in Bloomington, IN fulfilling my doctor of optometry degree at Indiana University. Following the footsteps of my parents, I began running at the age of 3 and ran collegiately at Saint Mary’s College, Notre Dame for 4 years. Since graduation in 2017, I have run 3 marathons with the Indianapolis Monumental Marathon as my third marathon in 2019. This course will always hold a special place in my heart, especially since I qualified for the 2021 Boston Marathon by 16 minutes!”

Alexa Green has been waking up before the sun even rises since 2017 telling your stories for the morning newscasts on FOX59/CBS4.  Since then, she has explored nearly every trail in Central Indiana, enjoying all that the Hoosier state has to offer. They say third time’s a charm right? This Jersey girl cannot wait to run the Monumental Marathon for the third time this fall.

If you run, you’re a runner. That’s my favorite part! This will be my first year participating in Indython, and my first Monumental Marathon. I’ve loved the other events in the past, and can’t wait to join this year! You can find me in the mid to back of the pack with a smile on my face and a cold drink in my hand after!

Hey y’all! It’s K-Money and I am happy to represent the back of the pack. This will be my first Indy Monumental. Some people race for PR’s. I do it for the camaraderie – and of course the party in the back.  Working on running a half marathon in all 50 states plus D.C.

My PR is nothing to brag about, but I have run every Indianapolis Monumental Full Marathon…12 years and counting! Favorite running moment? That frigid shake-out run in 2019, with former Olympian Deena Kastor.
