Stephanie Francis

Stephanie began running at age 40 when her family moved to the avid running community of Duluth, MN. She chose running as an avenue to make friends in her new community and she made plenty of friends in those first three years with 22 halfs, 5 fulls, 3 trail 50ks, and countless training runs. The most important parts of running to her are the Three C’s: community, camaraderie, and cute tutus. She enjoys pacing for Beast as it gives her the FUN opportunity  of helping others reach their goals and connecting people to a lifelong running community while helping her meet her goal of running a long distance event in every state before her 50th birthday in 2023.
