About Emma Abrahamson

Born and raised in San Diego, California, Emma embraced an active lifestyle beginning at a very early age. She started her athletic journey as a competitive swimmer at the age of 4. She swam successfully for seven years at the Western Region level. She officially made the switch over to running full time after consistently winning (and thoroughly enjoying) the Jr. Carlsbad mile races with very little formal training. Once she made the switch, she never looked back!

Emma joined the San Diego Road Runners youth running club and competed at the national Junior Olympic level. In high school, she was one of the most successful runners in San Diego County and in the state of California, and was also ranked in the top 20 nationally. Emma made the decision to take her love for running to the next level by choosing to run for her dream school, the University of Oregon. At Oregon she earned a spot on the travel team all 4 years and helped her team win the NCAA Cross Country National Championship in 2016. After graduating in 2018 with a degree in Business and Sports Management, Emma decided to take her excitement and passion for running in a new direction and is now actively helping runners of all ages reach their running goals and dreams. After 12 years as a competitive runner, Emma is now excited to use everything she has learned from some of the best coaches in the country to empower the next generation of runners.
