Piper has been passionate about fitness for as long as she can remember and loves sharing that enthusiasm for health. She has run eight marathons, including Boston and Athens (the original!) and just completed her third 1/2 Ironman triathlon. After college, she earned her AFAA (Aerobics & Fitness Association of America) certification and discovered the joy of sharing fitness with others through teaching yoga and kickboxing. After law school, Piper began sharing her love of running (and of Washington, DC) with residents and visitors as a guide with City Running Tours and continues to work as a running coach. She tries to challenge and encourage her classes simultaneously, aiming to get people out of their comfort zone and feel so great about it that they’d like to do it again!
