Haley Ritsema - Kalamazoo

Journey to Movement:
I started running when I was in 4th grade because I wanted to be just like my mom who had run the Boston Marathon a few years before. I began to run competitively in middle school and now run cross country and track & field at Western Michigan University!
Where's your favorite place to move? My favorite local place to run is Al Sabo Land Preserve in Texas Corners, which is about 15 minutes outside of Kalamazoo (although the Kal Haven trail comes in a close second).
Where was one of your favorite places you've traveled?
One of the best places I've traveled was to LA my freshman track season for the Mt. SAC Relays. Being immersed in the west coast track culture for those four days and seeing world class performances every night was a crazy cool experience.
