Our Midwest Runner:
Age: 36, Minneapolis, MN
The physical, mental and social perks of running have inspired Vertin’s personal and professional life. A manager at Mill City Running, she starts her day at a local homeless shelter running with residents through a nonprofit she helped found called Mile in My Shoes. What’s better than completing a marathon? Helping someone else complete her first!
