I’ve been in Indy the last 3 years but I’ve lived in 9 states over the years. I’m happy to call Indy home as it is one of the best cities, especially for runners. On Saturdays I can be found running with the Indy Runners in Broad Ripple. I’ve done 31 marathons including a marathon in Antarctica! But these days the half marathon is more my distance.
2019 Monumental Ambassadors
Hey, hey! I am so excited to be a part of the inaugural Monumental Ambassador program! This will be my 4th year (combo of half and 5Ks) running Monumental and it is hands down one of THEE best races Indiana has to offer. Originally from Ohio and started running in 2012, but did not become consistent until I moved to Indy in 2015 and here I am a Ragnarian and running my first Marathon in October! No matter your race or pace, I look forward to running along your journey with you!
Hailing from Prospect, KY, I’m an enthusiastic back-of-the-packer who believes anything is possible as long as you’re willing to take the first step. I’m a mom, step-mom, wife of an awesome husband, aka “race sherpa”, with a passion for exercise, travel & needlepoint, a strong like of running and a big love of training plans. If I can do it, you can too!
Everyone has their reason for why the run. It’s all about discovering what that reason is and proving to yourself that, yes, it’s tough but YES, you can do it! I’ve done 3 full marathons, 13 half marathons, and countless other races. I truly have a passion for not only sharing my love for Indy but my love for running throughout this city too.
I’m a native Michigander who moved to Indy 7 years ago and subsequently fell in love with running. Since then I’ve run over 50 races, and when I’m not lacing up my running shoes, you can find me at the gym lifting or lounging on my couch with my husband and puppy.
I am a runner from Roswell, GA and a member of the Roswell Running Company. My most recent race was the Publix Marathon in Atlanta, GA where I ran A 3:07:55; I look forward for attempting for a Boston Qualifier at the CNO Financial Indianapolis Monumental Marathon!
I am a husband, dad of three, healthcare consultant, and your average middle-aged runner from Chicago. I really enjoy getting people excited about running, and helping show that there is something special sitting just beyond your comfort zone. Look for me training for the CNO Financial Indianapolis Monumental Marathon on the Chicago lakefront path.
Hi! I am Emily Nickles, an accountant, wife, mother and of course, RUNNER from Cincinnati, Ohio. This is my second CNO Financial Indianapolis Monumental Marathon, and seventh overall Marathon.
I’m a wife, mom and nurse with a crazy running problem! Running has changed my life and brought so many opportunities and amazing people into it! And it all started when a family member invited me to run the CNO Financial Indianapolis Monumental Half Marathon a few years ago!!
Hi y’all! I ran my first half 9 years ago to check 13.1 off my bucket list, but discovered a love of running I never expected. Destination races, including Disney’s Dopey Challenge and Ragnar Michigan, are my excuse for a runner-girl-road-trip but nothing beats my favorite hometown course. 2019 marks my eighth Monumental race, and my second CNO Financial Indianapolis Monumental Marathon!
