Becca Schell comes from the Athens Academy in Athens, Georgia, where she started running to occupy her time after school. Little did she know that she’d eventually become exceptionally good at the sport; during her CMS career she has shaved minutes off her previous personal bests. She is a junior at Scripps College, where she is majoring in neuroscience. She says of running that the most important lesson she’s learned is discipline. For Becca, the ideal post-race meal is a plateful of cheesy eggs.
