About Alex and Cortney
Raised in Colorado, Cortney fell in love with sports and the outdoors as kid. She found running after getting engaged to her now husband. After their wedding she continued to run and developed a deeper passion for the sport as an opportunity to spend time with her friends and dogs. It was actually Cortney’s idea to run their first half marathon more than 10 years ago. Her husband was celebrating his birthday and wanted to go to Vegas. The Rock ‘n’ Roll Vegas Half Marathon was the same weekend, so Cortney invited a few friends along including her future co-founder. The group had a blast and Cortney was hooked on the distance.
To date Cortney has finished multiple half marathons, 10Ks and 5Ks, all while sporting the coolest leggings and even a few costumes she has made herself. Fitness has become an on-going journey and part of her daily life and she looks forward as she continues to grow her knowledge and experience. She begins most mornings with a coffee, which her husband brings to her, and a run with her pup, Luna. Cortney is a certified RRCA run coach. Follow her on Instagram at @motivatedbymiles.
Growing up in New Jersey, Alex played a variety of sports from swimming, ballet, soccer and basketball, but then in 1998 she watched the Winter Olympics and fell in love with the sport of alpine skiing. Having learned to ski at age 5, she already loved the sport but at age 15 she persuaded her parents to allow her to move across the country to Steamboat Springs, Colo. to attend boarding school and train with the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club. While her skiing career did not play out as planned, her love for fitness continued. After graduating from college, she moved to New York City to pursue a career in public relations. In 2010, she moved to Denver to be closer to the mountains and to lead a more active lifestyle.
Alex has trained for numerous half marathons, completed two marathons and got into triathlons and paddleboarding. She is grateful for the life fitness and sports have given her and she hopes to share her love of brunch, especially blueberry pancakes, passion and motivation with others to help them lead their best life. Alex is a certified RRCA run coach and NASM CPT. Connect with her on Instagram at @alexweissner.
