About the Author:

Author Brianna K. Grant is a girl who loves to run. She also keeps her creative juices flowing by writing special interest pieces for The River Current News, newsletter articles, and children's stories. Her teaching experience led Brianna to meet with Girls on the Run program founder Molly Barker. On a cloudy Seattle morning they discussed ideas that ultimately became We Are Girls Who Love to Run, fulfilling Brianna's life-long dream of writing a book. She earned her Bachelor's Degree in Art History from the University of Georgia and a Master's in Teaching from Queens University of Charlotte. Brianna writes, runs, hikes, quilts and practices yoga in Duvall, Washington where she lives with her husband David, two children and dog.
