Kristyn Meade joined the MRC Running Club in September, 2009 and loves every aspect of running. Meade will shy away from no running event including extreme events such as the RunaMuck Mud Races and virtually any distance event.
Meade competes in several events every year, and was recently the winner of the Granby (Mass.) 10k held in June and is regularly the Turkey at the Springfield College Turkey Chase. Meade also completed her first half-marathon in May at the Brooklyn Half.
Kristyn graduated from Coyle & Cassidy High School where she ran track & field and cross country before excelling at the mid-distances in track & field at Springfield College. Primarily a 600-meter runner in college, Meade has since made the transition to longer races.
Kristyn graduated from Springfield College with a Master’s Degree in Occupational Therapy and Rehabilitation & Disability Studies.
A native of Raynham, Mass., she now resides in Springfield.
