Rachel Preiss started running in her 20’s after two decades of ignoring all athletic pursuits. What was at first a grueling struggle became integrated into her life and now her running shoes hold a prominent position in her closet, next to her scrubs and worn out pair of jeans. When she’s not strapped to a pair of sneakers, she works as a nurse practitioner in a major medical center, tries (and fails) to get the dog to be active, and enjoys spending time eating delicious food throughout Boston.
Though he’ll never admit it, Mark Preiss, is more naturally athletically inclined, though he, too, started running regularly in his mid 20’s. He is a connoisseur of finely brewed IPA’s, food trucks and always makes sure that Rachel knows the weather before she leaves the house.
