Renee Metivier Baillie
Renee Metivier Baillie has been a professional runner since 2005, when she graduated from the University of Colorado at Boulder. She has represented the USA at five IAAF World Championships, and she is the 2010 USATF Indoor 3000m National Champion as well as the 2012 USATF 20k National Champion. Renee debuted in the marathon at the 2012 Chicago Marathon, where she ran 2:27:17 – the third fastest American debut and ranks seventh on the all-time Fastest American Marathoners list.
Renee underwent Achilles surgery in the summer of 2011, and her subsequent comeback has been much of the inspiration behind Recharge. Renee and her husband, Austin Baillie, stayed in the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs for her rehab after surgery and had access to a plethora of innovative tools to aid her recovery. After the three months there, they questioned why this knowledge and equipment were not readily available to everyone. Renee and Austin’s mission is to bring professional-level recovery to everyone so that they can help people reach their full potential.
Renee is excited to share her vast knowledge from years of competitive athletics with you so you can be happier and healthier in your own pursuits!
