My name is Joel Frye and I currently live in Washington, DC. I am a physical education teacher working with early childhood and elementary school-aged children.
I have been running for over 20 years and love promoting the sport within my community. I have completed five marathons and several half marathons and am looking forward to taking on new challenges and chasing new goals.
One of my favorite aspects of running is its community; I am a member of GRIT USA, an adult endurance and multisport development team, and several other running communities in the DC area. I think running has a unique way of bringing people together and I love sharing running opportunities and inviting others to join.
Recently, I have really dove into exploring new trails and routes, and really just taking in all the views and the entire experience every run has to offer. Running has provided so much joy in my life. I have used it as a means for mental and emotional management, to travel to new places, and mostly to share moments with friends.
