Kathleen Cushing-Murray

Kathleen has enjoyed running competitively since she was eight years old. Kathleen’s four children (two at UCLA) and her husband (former UCLA standout) also run competitively. Kathleen enjoys spending time with her family at home (game night!) and on vacation (beach, Mammoth). After forty years of competing against Tania Fischer, Kathleen is looking forward to running on the same team!
