February Athlete of the Month: Pippa Hill

Our spotlight athlete of the month is Pippa Hill.  Pippa has been training and racing with us since 2016.

What else do you want people to know?  

My dad has done more than 100 marathons and has done the Boston Marathon 5 times (soon to be 6). He has also completed 12 Ironmans.

 

Pippa not only has a ton of natural ability, but also has the drive to work hard and improve.  She will finish a drill or set at practice and ask what she can do to make it better next time. 

 

She also has a great combination of intellect and athleticism.  I have found her reading a huge novel before a race, bookmark it, go race hard and win her age group, and then play and have fun right after.  She is a prime example of what we want in youth athletics... motivated, enthusiastic, and knows how to be a kid at the same time.  I can't wait to see what the season holds for her!
