Hi! I’m Ashley and I've been a runner on and off for over 20 years - the poster child for that love/hate relationship with running, you know?!

I accidentally started running in middle school when I started at a new school and one of my new friends decided to run cross country. The rest, as they say, is history.

Over the years, I have literally raced just about every distance 50 meters (!) up to a marathon. I'm currently working towards finishing the six world marathon majors - I’m coming for you Tokyo and London 2020! Even though I’m working towards these marathons, I find half marathons to be more fun!

I live in Newton, not far from the Boston Marathon course which is great because it is probably my favorite place to run in this area. Besides running, my other loves are animals, food, friends and family. I have been married almost seven years and am the proud mom of my dog, Heike and my cat, Zimti.

Running is a MILLION times better with other people and I’ve been looking to recreate the fun, supportive and fearless team atmosphere I experienced in school. Let’s bring the BALG to life in Boston!

I can't wait to meet you, share a run and become badass running friends. 

Your co-leaders: Jenn & Ashley
