|High School:||Granite Falls|
A freshman at Mudd, Rachel is excited to compete with the Athenas this season and hopes to improve on her 20:08 (5k) and 5:41 (mile) PRs. She loves running to clear her head and relieve stress. She shares her love of mangoes with C. Briskman, yet she always eats a banana before racing. Her dream run would be on “a beautiful trail in the mountains that is smooth enough that I can look around while I run”. She enjoys the challenge of long hilly runs. Hailing from Arlington, WA, Rachel is the daughter of Deborah Weinstein and Andrew Mow. She likens her mother to Meryl Streep, only “shorter and almost as awesome”. Apparently her father has Buddha-like qualities. Rachel looks forward to competing with her teammates and “meeting awesome people” this season!
