Kara Storage

Coach: Joe Vigil
Event: 10K/Marathon
Team: Run Ohio Racing Team
Sponsor: Infinite Running

Career Highlights:
Although Kara grew up playing soccer, she has been a devoted runner since running her first year of cross country as a sophomore at Beavercreek High School (Dayton, OH) under Coach Jack Holliday and winning the Division I State Team title. From high school she went on to become a student-athlete at the University of Dayton where she was coached by George Brose and Harold “Lefty” Martin. Because both George and Coach Martin stressed the importance of education, she was able to graduate summa cum laude with a B.S. in Chemical Engineering in 2003 while still competing in cross country, indoor, and outdoor track all four years of college. Upon graduation, Kara was hired into the Systems Support Division of the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base (WPAFB), OH where she works in the Adhesives, Composites, and Elastomers group. With the flexibility and support of her co-workers, she was able to continue running post-collegiately and still obtain her M.S. in Materials Engineering in 2007 from the University of Dayton.

Kara loves running as much as her twin sister, Tara, and the two of them can be seen together racing at a meet, or carpooling to work, or doing their workouts with their great training partners and friends in Dayton, OH. They are thrilled to be coached by the world renowned Coach Joe Vigil as they continue to improve in cross country, track, and road races. Spiritually, intellectually, and physically, Kara is constantly challenged, motivated, and supported by Joe, fellow runners, her wonderful family and friends, co-workers, and many other mentors as she continues on her running and life journey. She hopes she can inspire others to live well-balanced lives of love and service, to achieve all their dreams, and to be the best version of themselves.

In her spare time, Kara enjoys reading, drawing, cooking, crafts, and home improvement projects , traveling, being outdoors, and spending time with friends and family. In addition, she enjoys participating in educational outreach programs and summer student mentoring opportunities at WPAFB. For the past ten years, when not competing in track meets herself, she volunteers at local and national track meets for both youth and masters as a registered Ohio High School Athletic Association (OHSAA) and USA Track and Field (USATF) official.
