Cindy Cardenas - Associate (ext. 292)

Cindy ran track in high school, running the only long distances they had back then…the 880 and the mile. Later, she decided to try running for fun while in college at Eastern Washington University. She has been running for fun ever since. Her favorite races were a 10k in New Orleans she ran with her niece, and a 15k she ran this year with her daughter on her 55th birthday. Cindy has also had an article published in Northwest Runner, in which she wrote about her participation the inaugural Daffodil 5k Challenge. Cindy loves meeting new runners while helping out at local running expos; seeing friends and family start running or walking fun runs; and her favorite races are those she runs with her family and friends.
