Brittany started running in 2002 when she was eight years old. She was in the second grade and remembers begging her parents to join the “fun run” club at her elementary school. Upon their approval, Brittany eagerly took up the opportunity. She figured out how to convert feet to miles and used her Dad’s measuring tape to create a one-mile course in her yard to practice running for fun. Although her love of running was evident to her family, it wasn’t until junior high when her running career began. From then on, she ran cross country and track in junior high, high school, and throughout all four years of college. She came away with a high-school title as as district champion in the 800 and placed in two state meets. She broke many track records at Wright State University and was a key runner in building their running program. After graduating college in 2016, Brittany is still pursuing her love of running and chasing new PRs. Brittany holds a BA in Psychology and currently works at Tell City Jr.-Sr. High School. She is an instructional assistant and volunteers as a distance coach for Tell City’s junior high track and field team.
She is married to Matthew Busse, a tooling engineer at ATTC Manufacturing. They have two German Shorthair Pointer-mix dogs. Some of Brittany’s interests aside from running include learning about health and nutrition, cooking and baking with whole ingredients, playing guitar, camping, being outside in warm weather, swimming in the ocean, traveling, working with horses, and hiking. Overall, she is driven to encourage and inspire others to be and achieve their best!
