Karissa Test Five

Portland, OR

There was a different mindset I had when I ran, I had confidence and I was more competitive. Even my teachers would say, "you're a different person on the track than you are in the classroom"

Meet Karissa Schweizer

Karissa Schweizer is running in hot as our first official Kodiak Athlete. A Midwesterner through and through, Karissa hails from Urbandale, Iowa. Some say she was destined for running, as both her parents and grandpa competed in that field. She tried her hand in other sports including basketball and soccer, but eventually chose to run competitively for University of Missouri.
