About Lea

Hi. I'm Lea Genders. My name is not Ollie, surprise! Ollie is my favorite four-legged running partner.

I am a NASM certified personal trainer that specializes in strength training for runners and an adult distance RRCA certified running coach. I have a professional background in merchandising, product development, sales and marketing. My creative outlets are fueled by my passion for running, writing and rock music. As a young girl I wanted to grow up to be a writer or a rock star. I ended up as a blogger who married a drummer. Close enough, right?

I share pictures of Ollie running lying around and tell the stories of my races and running adventures, the people and gear that help me cross the finish line at races and in life.

Originally from Pittsburgh, PA (go Steelers!) I now reside in Fort Worth, TX with my husband and my four-legged running partner, Ollie. I run with my dog, but this blog is not all about him, he just looks cute in the pictures. Just don't tell him that.

Lea and Ollie

Ollie is an English Pointer mix living in Fort Worth. He enjoys chasing squirrels, stare-down contests with cats, belly rubs and bacon. You can find regular updates and handsome boy pictures of him on the Running with Ollie Blog and by following his mom @leagenders on Twitter.

If you send an email addressed to Dear Ollie...I'll read it to him, but I am not sure he will respond. You'll do best to address emails to me. :)
