She grew to enjoy running and was a member of her high school's cross-country and spring track teams all four years.

Ali Trzaska -- Chief Merchandiser; Sports Bra Manager; Fit Specialist. Ali is extremely passionate about running/walking/fitness and helping others achieve the positive experiences she has been lucky enough to enjoy throughout her participation in the sport.  Since 2008 she has trained for and run The Philadelphia Marathon, twelve half marathons, and an assortment of other road, trail, and mud races.  Her favorite running-related quote is by Arthur Blank: “I run because it’s so symbolic of life. You have to drive yourself to overcome the obstacles. You might feel that you can’t. But then you find your inner strength, and realize you’re capable of so much more than you thought.”
