Emily Sisson was a fine high school runner from Missouri.

She made the cover of our partner publication, Missouri Runner & Triathlete due to her fine cross country running.

After starting at Wisconsin, Emily transferred to Providence college and ran quite well, winning several NCAA titles under the watchful eye of Coach Ray Treacy. She also had a pretty cool training group, with Amy Hastings and Molly Huddle for some of her workouts.

After winning the NCAA 5000 meter title, Emily graduated and was signed by New Balance.

Training with the elite athlete Molly Huddle has been a great opportunity for Emily to see how someone grows into the professional side of the the sport.

Emily raced well in September, but in October, she really shined, taking second in the Tufts 10k in 32:18, setting a personal best. For her fine running this fall and her superb 10k in Boston, we give Emily Sisson our RBR Athlete of the Month for October 2015!
