Ashly Colosimo

Cross Country Coach

I’m Ashly Colosimo, I just completed my bachelor’s degree from the University of Pittsburgh. Some fun facts about me, I enjoy kayaking, and mini golf. I have two dogs I call them “my boys,” they go everywhere with me, and I tell a lot of stories about them. As far as my experience I ran cross country and track in high school and then competed in marathons throughout my college career. I am eager to continue my passion for running as a coach. I’d like to share my two favorite quotes with you. The first one is “Running is 20% physical and 80% mental.” The other one being, “Work will win when wishing wont.” I hope to use these ideals as I coach and am eager for the upcoming season!
