Christy Heid

Hey, Christy, welcome to the RUNColumbus team! Christy says she joined the race series with her niece “to find fun ways to run together this year! I love participating in various races I may not hear about otherwise. We look forward to participating in various races, holding each other accountable, and staying motivated throughout the year!

Christy adds “I celebrated one year of ovarian cancer survivorship in 2022 by running my first marathon at the Nationwide Children’s Columbus Marathon. Since then, I’ve become hooked on the challenge of this distance and raising awareness as a fundraiser for NOCC and Children’s Hospital. I’m looking forward to participating in the 2023 Dick’s Pittsburgh Marathon with NOCC Team Teal in May, and I need to get ready for those hills! I like doing CrossFit to provide strength training and incorporating yoga to enhance mobility and recovery. My niece and I enjoy discovering new trails with Hikerbabes Central Ohio and joining CRC group runs on Saturdays. I routinely join Dave’s Running in Findlay on Wednesday evenings and love running with friends, new and old, every chance I get.”
