Chelsie Pennello

Chelsie started running in the 6th grade after she unexpectedly won her school’s turkey trot. She ran track and cross country all four years in high school, where she became a county champion and state runner-up in the 1600. Chelsie continued her running career at Syracuse, and during her senior year she was consistently the team’s 6th runner during in cross country, and competed at the NCAA championship. Chelsie hopes to break 17:00 in the 5000 on the track, and believes that GRC will help her get there. When she’s not at practice, Chelsie works in DC as an associate producer for a video production company.
