Stacey Federico: Started running as a way to stay in shape in the off season of swim team in High School and, ended up enjoying it so much, walked on to the Track and Cross Country teams at Ohio Wesleyan, competing on the collegiate level from 1994-1998. I enjoyed the thrill of competition and continued to run in graduate school and beyond, racing distances from the 5k to the marathon. When moving back to MA from the Midwest, I joined the tri-Valley Front-Runners where I made many new friends in the community and continued to learn more about the sport. I am still part of this running club today.

Christina Tocci: Christina began running as a way to get back into shape after having her first child. She began training for first 5k and realized how much she loved running and racing. Since then she has run multiple races including the 2019 Boston Marathon. Christina loves helping people achieve their goal of becoming a runner. She enjoys competitive racing but also running with friends. 

Lauren Hagen: Lauren was on the Franklin High School’s varsity Cross Country and Track and Field teams for four years, which is where I found my passion for running. As a high school athlete, I was selected as captain and was a part of several teams that participated at the national level. Furthering my running career, I completed my undergraduate at Assumption College where I continued running as a member of their running programs. To this day I continue running at intermural events that include half marathons.
