Alyson Carlyon

Alyson works full time as the Clinic Administrator for NorthStar Medical Specialists. She ran the 100-meter hurdles in high school and was a gymnast for 13 years before becoming a nationally ranked, All-American diver in college. She returned to running in 2013, competing in her first ½ and full marathon; qualifying for Boston in her first attempt at the distance. Alyson has just started Spartan Sprint racing, which incorporates her skillset and background tremendously. In her 3rd Sprint Race, she placed 6th in the Elite Division.

Her Quadballer. “After a long run, I love to lay on the Quadballer and roll out. Seriously, it hurts so good!”
Her favorite quote, “The most important thing is, to be able at any moment to sacrifice who we are for what we may become.” – Charles DuBois
The Seattle Seahawks. “I am a proud, devoted and slightly obsessed member of the 12th man team – still on a high from watching them live at the Superbowl in February.”
Her vice, frozen yogurt. “People may have heard me refer to Menchies as the ‘happiest place in Bellingham’ a time or two.”
