Cindy Carlson

In the summer of 2006, after the birth of her second son, Cindy joined Team in Training to run the Santa Barbara Half in November.  Although it was a big challenge for her at the time, she was hooked.  To date, she has completed over 60 half marathons, almost 30 marathons/ultras and is only interested in running more!

Her first marathon was Long Beach in 2009 while her first ultra, a 50k, was Leona Divide in 2015.  She is part of the Dirt Divas, a ultra trail running women’s group, A Snail’s Pace and her local Moms Run This Town (MRTT) chapter.  She enjoys the camaraderie of the running world and loves to give back and inspire others.

Cindy is married to her college bestie, and has three boys and two cats.  She works as a full-time high school math teacher and during the school year, squeezes runs in the early morning and just about every weekend.  Summers are her time to go crazy and play on the trails in SoCal.

In the words of her coach, Keira Henniger, “Just keep your s*%# moving!”
