My name is Lacey and I’m a marathon runner who enjoys coffee, listening to Taylor Swift and going on adventures. I’m a New Jersey native who attended high school in the Pennsylvania Coal Region where I was a cheerleader. Upon high school graduation I enlisted in the U.S. Air Force as a Health Services Manager. I’ve been stationed in Anchorage, Alaska; Wichita Falls, Texas and San Antonio, Texas. During my time in Anchorage I was the mascot for the University of Alaska Anchorage.

After 2 active duty enlistments I transferred to the Pennsylvania Air National Guard and had the opportunity to attend Penn State University where I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Business. I currently balance my military career as a Master Sergeant in the Air Guard where I manage Patient Admin with my civilian career at St. Luke’s University Hospital where I perform patient admin duties.

I am a certified RRCA Level I Coach and former Bib Rave Pro in the Tamaqua, PA area. With 15 years experience running, I ran competitively in the Army 10 Miler with Ft Sam Houston Team, I’ve finished 20 half-marathons and 1 full-marathon. I use my experience and knowledge to research and report on topics of interest effecting the running community.

I am available for collaborations, coaching and other related inquiries.
