MEET OUR 2021 BOARD OF DIRECTORS
The CBRC Board is elected every October by club membership.
President & Coach
Kim started running in 2009 with a goal of running a 5k. Once she crossed the finish line, she was hooked and has now run over 200 races, including 20 marathons and is a five-time Boston Qualifier.
Active in run club leadership since 2013, she holds coaching certifications through RRCA and USATF. Kim holds weekly group runs and track workouts for the club and takes great pride in seeing the success of her runners.
“Running has taken me on a journey I could never have imagined, but it’s the friendships that have made the journey extra special.”
Vice President & Coach
Sara has been a runner for over a decade. She started with Couch to 5K and has now run countless races including two full Pittsburgh Marathons and multiple road and trail relays. Having restarted with run/walking repeatedly over the years, Sara particularly relates to new and returning runners.
Her RRCA level 1 coaching certification further enables her to enthusiastically support new and returning runners, as well as those with run streaks a mile long.
When not running, Sara is a Childbirth Educator and Doula, helping families grow. She is also a Running Shoe nerd, providing fit and gait advice at a local running shop. Sara's spouse, two children, and dog also run. You'll most often find them running in their Rennerdale neighborhood or on the Panhandle trail.
Robb started running in 2014 with a Couch-to-5K program, and has since run several 5K and 10K races, 4 Half Marathons, 8 Marathons, and a 50K. He has led a pace group, either 9:30 or 9:00, every cycle since the Fall 2016 cycle, and enjoys the friendships and accountability that a Run Club brings.
When he is not running, Robb likes to eat carbs and plan out his next run.
Keirstyn began running in 2016 during her first year of law school. She has run everything from a 5k to a 50k, but her favorite distance is the half-marathon. She is extremely thankful for the running community and all of the friends she has made along the way.
On the few occasions where she is not running or thinking about running, Keirstyn can be found hanging out with her pup, Winnie.
Member-At-Large & Coach
Matt began his running career along the Jersey Shore in 1985 and has never looked back. Matt spent much of the 1990's coaching for the Nike Green Mountain Running Camps in Vermont; has been a head coach at both the high school and collegiate levels and currently serves as the Asst. Head Coach for Pine Richland Track and Field in the North Hills.
Locally, Matt has been the director of 2 local running clubs and an active part of the Pittsburgh running community for almost a decade with Elite Runners & Walkers, Pro Bike + Run and now Up-N-Running in Valencia. Currently, Matt is the Director of Race Development for GCXC Racing and looks forward to putting on great running events throughout the Pittsburgh region for runners of all abilities.
When he isn't running, you will likely find Matt on a trail somewhere hiking and exploring waterfalls.
