Ethan
 
I started running in 2011 just to get back into shape and I just grew to love it. I signed up for my first marathon when I went to watch my brother run the 2011 St. George Marathon. It was my first time ever being at a marathon and I loved the energy I felt there so when I saw the Utah Valley Marathon booth at the expo I wanted to sign up for it but I was not sure if I was ready to do one so my brother had to convince me to just sign up and pay for it. That is what I did and it made me train for it, if I didn’t would be out of the money I spent for it. From that point on I have loved running. I have ran a couple more full and half marathons, a Ragnar, and a few 5ks. One of my favorite marathons to run is the Utah Valley Marathon partly because it was my first marathon but also I love the big race feel, it’s one of the bigger races I’ve ran.  I love working at Teton Running Company because I get to share what I love to do with others and help them prepare to reach their goals. I started working here July of 2011. I am currently going to school at BYU-Idaho studying Business. 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
Gama
 
My name is Gamaliel Huerta, but everyone calls me Gama.  I was born in Mexico then moved to the United States when I was 9 years old. I have been working at Teton Running for about 2 years. A few years back I decided to make some lifestyle changes. I joined a local gym where I met a runner who was training for a marathon. She was inspiring.  She encouraged me to sign up for my first half marathon.  I was determined and after the half marathon I felt accomplished.  Running made me happy. I fell in love with running and decided to sign up for a full marathon.  I have completed at least 5 half marathons and 4 full marathons. My favorite race is St. George Marathon. The entire city comes together to support all of the athletes and everyone there is so welcoming. I enjoy working at Teton Running for so many reasons. I love the stories I hear from elite runners who inspire me. I love coaching and helping novice runners who have a goal like I did. This year I have decided to branch out of my comfort zone and sign up for a triathlon.  I amcurrently training for the Bengal Sprint Triathlon and the Spudman Olympic Triathlon.  I hope to qualify for the Boston Marathon one day and also hope to complete an Ironman. Running has taught me a lot about myself and about what we are capable of doing. I love to run!
 
 
 
 
Maggie 
 
I'm a senior at BYU-Idaho studying Business-Marketing, I love anything and everything active and outdoors. One of my passions is physical fitness and always striving to improve myself. I LOVE working at Teton Running because I get to connect with and help others who share the same goals. Running is one of my favorite things to do because not only is great for you physically but also mentally. I feel like I can have a personal vacation everyday when I run. I ran my first marathon in 2014 in Ogden and this has been my favorite running experience thus far.  
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Josh
 
My name is Josh and I'm from Castle Rock, Colorado! I have been a runner since I was 5 years old. My mom would make me run around the block whenever I would tease my little brothers and sisters. Eventually, I stopped teasing my brothers and sister and eventually I got really good at running. Even though my mom wouldn't tell me to go run I continued to run because I loved the feeling. I continued to run in high school where I became a nationally ranked runner and achieved several stated records including becoming a state champion. Last year I got married to my beautiful wife Brittany and we continue to run together. The greatest thing about running is that everyone can do it and everyone who runs is super friendly and welcoming. 
 
 
Morgan
 
Hi, my name is Morgan! I've been working at Teton Running Company since September of 2015. There is nothing I love more than the outdoors and healthy living! With ten years of snowboarding, four years of soccer, and with the myriad hikes and runs I've participated in, exercise is a huge part of my life. I was never the best or fastest runner, but I improve everyday and I love what I do! "Running must be the only aspect of life in which, 'It's all downhill from here,' is literally the best thing you can hear."

In 6th grade I set my middle school's record for the mile. It will never be broken.
 
Tyler
 
Hello my name is Tyler, I have worked at Teton Running for a over a year now and I love every minute of it. I found my love of running in high school since then I have run various races including 2 marathons. Apart from running I enjoy hiking in the great outdoors and participating in any sport I can.
 
 
Chelsea
 
I'm Chelsea and I recently just graduated from BYU-Idaho in Animal Science.  For most of my life I've always enjoyed being outside whether it be for walking, hiking, riding bikes, or jogging. Ive played soccer since I was young and enjoyed improving my physical fitness. My dad is a really big runner and in high school, he really got me more into running.  Since then I've used it to help my speed in soccer and loved pushing myself to see how much I could do with my body in running. I've done multiple 5ks, one 16 mile endurance run in the mountains, and recently finished my first half marathon last summer. Unfortunately last October I had surgery for my ACL tear and am now starting my running back up. It's been interesting to learn more about leg injuries and what works best to help the recovery process. I enjoy working at Teton Running because I get to learn from and help other active people. I hope to help provide the best shoe for each individual from my experiences and love for running!
