Freddi has been running since 1978 and is the editor/publisher of Runner’s Gazette. As print has given way to digital, Freddi is determined to give RG readers everything they expect from the print version…and more. Freddi is a former president of the Road Runners Club of America after starting as the PA State Rep, and a former board member of USATF. She was a founding member of the Buffalo Valley Striders, and its first president. In 1979, Freddi originated the role of Miss Road Manners to acquaint runners with the rules of the road, track, and trail. Freddi, known as Bubbie by her grandkids, is the mom of two adult children, writes a social column for the local paper, is a native Philadelphian and bleeds green for her team, the Philadelphia Eagles.
