Cindy Brendel

Growing up in a small town (650 people) in Southern Illinois, Cindy began running in the second grade when the coach was trying to recruit more students for track.  She must have gotten some of her parents’ love for the sport because she was hooked on running and has never looked back.  Cindy enjoys competing in 5K and 10K races but truly loves the camaraderie among runners that the longer races create. She has completed a handful of marathon/ultras and is looking forward to adding to that list.  Her favorite race was a 50K held in Hell, Michigan.  Now the proud mother of three beautiful children, Cindy finds time to run with the help of her amazing husband, Tim!
