- 1. Follow our journey to make the 2016 US Olympic Team
2. Why do you want to partner with Steph and Ben Bruce? We race all over the USA and World. In 2013 we raced in a combined 30-40 races lining up in front of hundreds of thousands of runners. We have won RocknRoll events in Arizona, San Diego, and New Orleans. San Diego (Ben) and Phoenix (Steph) is where we grew up and both are very big markets for Competitor and RocknRoll. We have won events, (Steph) RocknRoll Arizona Half 2013, and(Ben) RocknRoll San Diego Marathon 2014, in both areas. We have goals to make 2016 Olympic Team for Rio with legitimate chances. Ben was the alternate for 2012 Olympic Games in London (steeplechase), and Stephs 2:29 marathon puts her with only a handful of USA Women whove run sub 2:30. We recently became parents to Riley James and now balance training with raising a baby. Steph will be chronicling her return to training and racing post baby via blogs, social media interactions and connecting with all the running moms. Weve gained knowledge in coaching, training, and psychology of the sport through years of our running experience and our college degrees. 3. OUR STORY We are the Bruces and we invite you to run with us. We are a running family trying to reach our dream of becoming Olympians. Becoming an Olympian is not our end goal. We want to leave the running world better then when we found it. We believe there is far more to being a professional runner then just running fast times. Yes, running fast, winning races, and competing at the highest level is what makes us professional but there are many more qualities that set us aside. It can be a challenge to balance our lives, training, owning a company, expanding a second company, and add in a brand new baby boy Riley our lives are full. This is why we believe we can relate to so many of the masses participating in running events across the world. No matter how busy you are running can become a life habit to help you live healthy and happy. 4. What we do Train hard to reach our goals. Its a 24 hour job.

We believe we understand our sport from every level that exists. From the elite racing world to the masses we know how to connect. Theres so much knowledge that we have from our own careers and wish to share it with the masses. In order for fans to care about you, you first need to care about them. No matter what level youre at we all share a common bond of wanting to get the most out of ourselves from running. Running has a different purpose for so many people and its our intention to help others find theirs.
