About this episode

A former Bostonian now living in Denver, Rosa Moriello is a multisport athlete who finds joy running on the roads and trails, climbing, and skiing. Set to compete in the upcoming 2024 Marathon Olympic Trials in Orlando, Florida, Rosa is one of America’s best marathoners, and is using her platform to fundraise for Orlando’s LGBTQ Youth. More than a runner, Rosa is a dog mom, friend, and wife, an avid puzzler, baker and reader.

In this episode we talk about:

  • falling in and out of love with running
  • finding trail running
  • building mental strength and toughness through running 
  • running the Olympic Trials to fundraise for LGBTQ rights  
  • different communities: Boston vs Boulder/ Denver, group training, teams and competition 
  • embracing multi sports
