Brianna grew up knowing Gerhard and Robert as “those guys my dad runs with.” She began running during her time as a student at Augustana and now has Gerhard and Robert to thank for developing a true love of the sport during her time there. Brianna continued her training since graduating from Augustana and has competed in distances ranging from five to 50 kilometres both on the trails and on the roads. She now looks forward to adding coaching to her love of running.
