Location: Eugene, Oregon
My name is Maiah and I live for almond milk lattes and running, not necessarily in that order. I enjoy daily running or walking my twin toddlers in a bright green double stroller; I am well known in my neighborhoods and have been told often that I’m motivating to other moms! I grew up in Eugene and come from a very athletic family; my twin sister and I ran track at South Eugene, and she went on to run Cross-Country at Navy. My younger twin brothers also run for fun, and my parents have run on the Amazon trail and around Eugene for years (though knee replacements mean they swim and walk these days). My siblings and I first started “running” races as toddlers in a double jogging stroller. My twin and I would hold our baby brothers in our laps as my dad pushed us while running Butte to Butte races, often wearing a full gorilla suit.
