FRANCESCA CONTE

ABOUT ME:Francesca 1

I was born in the Italian Alps where my heart still resides.  The thing that brings me the most joy is always being and running in the mountains, because nothing gives you perspective like the grandeur of a mountain landscape.  On my spare time, I am the President of Bad to the Bone Sports, a race production company.  I have a PhD in Biology from the University of Virginia, but that was another life.

CAREER RUNNING HIGHLIGHTS:

The next race or run is always the highlight for me, as reminiscing is not my forte.  Under my record, I have 11- 100 mile wins, 3- 100k wins, 1- 70 miler win, 13- 50 miler wins, 3- 40 miler wins and 15-50k wins.

WHY TEAM OS1st?

OS1st products are medical devices and have therefore a lot of research and testing behind them.  They have helped me in many of my runs either as a preventative measure or to keep soreness at bay.  The targeted compression areas differentiate them from other products and they make the fit and comfort unparalleled.
