meet the board
My name is Casey and I am proud to be the president of the club this year. My job is to oversee all of the operations of the club and to act as the face for things like announcements. You should feel free to come to me with any questions! I’ve been running for 8 years now and have done everything from 100 meters to the Pittsburgh Marathon. Outside of running, I am majoring in psychology with a minor in creative writing. I like to boulder at Ascend, read and write, and occasionally play some video games. I’m also proud to be a member of the transgender community and am a big advocate for mental health. Hope to see you around!
Hi my name is Duncan, and I’m going to be a senior in the Emergency Medicine program this year! When not pretending that I still run every day, I’m probably at work, listening to music, or playing video games with my roommates. If you ever need anything, feel free to reach out and let me know. I’m looking forward to being your VP this year, and H2P!
Hello everyone!! I’m Madelyn Hoffman, this year’s club running treasurer. I’m a senior majoring in Computational Biology. A little bit about me: my navigation skills are spot on (aka my phone is dead 75% of the time, and I like to solo adventure). My high school self would hate to admit this, but I am a converted Swiftie. I’m from South of Buffalo, better described as the NY extension of Pennsyltucky. I love hiking despite being incredibly clumsy. Current hyper fixation food: sweet potatoes. Fav race distance: half marathon. Fav PGH running route: Smithfield. Proudest running accomplishment: training my incredibly cute dog to run 5+ miles (we’re still working on the squirrel obsession thing). This is my third year running with the club, and I’m really looking forward to a fun year with y’all!
Hey guys, my name is Nolan Pernia and I will be your race coordinator this year. I am a Mechanical Engineer with a minor in English Literature and joined the club two years ago. Besides running and school I spend lots of time with my dog J and reading miscellaneous books. While I originally joined the club with the primary focus of racing, I have since made many friends and have been welcomed with open arms to the team. This year I hope to have some competitive and fun races for all and welcome runners of all experience levels to enjoy the sport and compete if they wish.
Hey guys, my name is Drew and I'm your travel coordinator. I'm a senior Information Science major. For people interested in meets, I'll be helping us coordinate the carpools to all of them! This club helped re-spark my love for running after high school - from 8ks in the fall to marathons in the spring.
When I'm not running you can find me coding random stuff, organizing my obscure music collection, or looking for new Docu-drama miniseries to watch. In the spring you'll find me in the Oakland Zoo cheering on Pitt Basketball. Excited for a great year with you all!
Social media coordinator
Hi everyone!! My name is Lexy, and I am serving as your Social Media Coordinator this year, meaning I am the mind behind all these silly posts you've been seeing! I am a junior Biology major and this is my third year with the team. Hobbies include stravaing, eating scooby snacks, and using the word silly. My favorite thing about running in Pittsburgh is getting to run across bridges (it will never not be cool) and exploring the city on foot. I am excited to meet new people and to social media coordinate the CRAP (Club Running at Pitt) out of this team!!
Hello, I’m Addison Mueller one of your co fundraising chairs. I’m a senior majoring in materials science and engineering, and I am from Maryland. When I’m not running or studying, you can find me reading, playing pickleball, or climbing. I have been running with the club since my freshman year and my favorite club memory is probably DJing at fall formal. I’m excited for another year raising those funds and hanging out with the club running homies, oh and some running.
Hello, I’m Allie Squeri, one of your co-fundraising chairs. I’m a senior majoring in Molecular Biology/Biochemistry, minoring in Chemistry, and pursuing a Conceptual Foundations of Medicine certificate. Outside of studying and running, I’m known for binging shows absurdly quick or playing the electric guitar. I’ve been running with the club since freshman year and have enjoyed every second of it with everyone! I look forward to a fast, fun(draising) year ahead and meeting new members!
