Meet the 2017 Team UC in the Westminster 10K

GregoryS Headshot

Name: Alexandra Brodmann, Team UC Leader

Campus: UC Berkeley, Class of 1988

Hometown: Originally from Zurich, Switzerland, has called London home since 2010

Alex is a big-hearted creative, who has always enjoyed running as a way of staying physically and mentally fit around a hectic schedule. She loves the simplicity of running, the freedom to go anywhere and that there are always new goals, challenges and opportunities to explore her abilities. She also enjoys being able to eat and drink without the guilt! 


What's your favorite...

Post-run snack? Brunch after a weekend run - eggs florentine with a Bloody Mary to top it off! 

Place to run in London?  Along the Thames.

Playlist to run to? Red Hot Chili Peppers are a firm favourite.

Why did you choose to run with Team UC? This will be my third year running the British 10K with Team UC. I am always blown away by the experience - crowds cheering you on as you run through some of the most iconic and beautiful parts of London. It feels like you're flying!

Do you have a personal best for the British 10K? I hope to finish just shy of 60 minutes.

What are you looking forward to after you cross the finish line? The sense of accomplishment... and the volunteer team waiting for us with an ice cold beer!
