Local Elite Athlete Spotlight - Dawn Grunnagle
We are pleased to announce that local standout runner and Nike sponsored athlete Dawn Grunnagle has decided to take on the Rockwall rolling hills of the Patriot. You will have an opportunity to meet Dawn at the Patriot Expo on Sunday May 26th. The time that she will be available will be communicated at a later date. Below is a little more about Dawn:
Speedkidz is Grunnagle's brainchild -- she's a North Texas runner sponsored by Nike. She qualified for the Olympic Trials last year and most recently won the Komen Race for the Cure in Dallas and the Rock N' Roll half at San Antonio. She's using her teaching skills to get kids excited about staying active and helping them improve on everything from their running form, to their speed and agility.
Dawn was a 3rd and 4th grade teacher for 10 years. She is the track coach for Greenhill School. She attended Texas Tech and the university of Houston. Her affiliations include Nike, Gatorade Endurance Athlete, and CryoUSA Athlete.
