Meet Inga! Team TRTs newest employee. Inga’s lifelong passion for running and physical fitness led to her obtaining a B.S. in Exercise and Sports Science with a Minor in Coaching from Frostburg State University. At Frostburg she also ran Cross-Country, Indoor and Outdoor Track from 1999-2003. During her collegiate running career at Frostburg she earned several awards. For over 10 years, Inga has applied her passion, experience and knowledge as an Assistant Cross-Country, Indoor and Outdoor Track and Field Coach at Catoctin High School. During her very rewarding and successful coaching career at Catoctin, the Boys’ Cross-Country Team won 4 Maryland State Cross-Country Championship Team Titles in both 1A and 2A classifications. They were 1A State Champions in 2010 and 2A State Champions from 2012-2014. She has also spent over 15 years improving the physical fitness and quality of life of clients as an NSPA Certified Conditioning Specialist. Inga ran her first JFK 50 Miler (ultra-marathon) in 2004 and will be running her 14th in 2019. She also enjoys physical fitness of all types and running of all distances. Although you may see Inga running a local 5K or half-marathon, hiking the C&O Canal or Harper’s Ferry with her family, designing running and exercise plans for clients or taking a jog around the neighborhood; you will also find her at Two Rivers Treads happily assisting customers in everything from choosing the appropriate footwear to achieving their health and fitness goals.
Inga’s passion can also be found in her 5yo son who loves to “go hiking”. Sadly, he was recently diagnosed with Duchenne’s Muscular Dystrophy (DMD); a terminal disease that robs the body of the ability to reproduce muscle with the loss of mobility being among its first target. Inga tirelessly spends much of her time raising awareness of this rare disease in the hopes that a cure will be found in time to prevent any further damage and his loss of mobility.
