This is part of the Arete Community Series leading up to our 2018 team launch.
We will be featuring Arete members from various chapter on the blog and social media in the next two weeks. Our teammates join us for various reasons: to chase personal best times, reignite their passion for running, or to lean into the challenge and satisfaction of racing. Although each of us show up for Arete for real life running community connection, each running story is different, authentic and inspiring.
In our lead up to announcing our 2018 chapter launch locations and dates, may these stories of our teammates inspire and excite us in our running and beyond.
Becky Gibbs Lavelle is a former professional triathlete, mom, and Director of Jenny’s Light: a foundation created in memory of her late twin sister who suffered from post-partum depression (learn more here: jennyslight.org). Becky was Arete’s top finisher at the recent Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon. A phenomenal athlete and wise & humble lady, we’re grateful to share the road with Becky.
Tell us a little about your athletic background and your rise to professional and Olympic triathlete.
Thanks for sharing so much of your story, Becky!
