2020 U.S. Olympic Marathon Trials Qualifier, PhD Candidate
Jocelyn Todd is an elite marathoner from St. Louis, MO currently based in Salt Lake City, Utah. She is a graduate of the University of Iowa and ran for both Iowa and the University of Utah. She is currently working towards her PhD in Biomedical Engineering at the University of Utah. For her dissertation research, she analyzes the mechanics of cartilage in the hip with computational modeling. Jocelyn's transition to marathon has been natural, since her favorite workout has always been the long run. She qualified for the Olympic Trials in 2018 at Grandma's Marathon with a personal record of 2:39:23, which she has since bested. In her free time she likes being outdoors with friends and baking.
