Klare is originally from Michigan and currently works for Curb Records. After finishing her collegiate running career, she had continued to run recreationally, frequenting the Greenway trail in Nashville. There, she noticed Achilles athletes and guides doing weekly training. Touched by the mission of the organization, Klare joined Achilles in September of 2016 and has been training with Chassity Choate for the Tinkerbelle Half Marathon in Disneyland in May! Klare always looks forward to the Wednesday night runs and hanging out with Achilles’ encouraging, kind and incredibly inspiring athletes and guides.
