One of Emory Anthropology’s first alumna, Dr. Vicki Bentley-Condit (’95PhD), qualified as a 4-star member of the Boston 50 Running Club. She is currently serving as Department Chair of Anthropology at Grinnell College and is a passionate runner. She gave us an update on her running:

“My first race – ever – was the Peachtree 10k on July 4, 1995. Two days later, I defended my dissertation and three weeks after that, I moved to Iowa. All these years later, I have completed 70 marathons/ultras and an unknown quantity of other distances. I finished my 50 States + DC pursuit in January at the Maui Oceanfront Marathon with my family in attendance. I am currently working on a 50 < 4 (marathons in all 50 states with a finish time of less than 4 hrs) and a 50 BQ (a marathon with a Boston qualifying time in all 50 states) with 12 and 9 states, respectively, remaining on those two goals. I hope to complete those by the end of 2018 and my concurrent goal of 100 marathons/ultras maybe by the end of 2020. After that, who knows? I might branch out to run internationally, perhaps finishing the World Majors or even the seven continents. We’ll see.”

Emory Anthropology offers her best wishes in her many races!
