Maureen Wise

Maureen Wise caught the running bug in high school when she was the only female to run the two-mile race on her high school track team. Not that she was a fast runner then—or now—but she's been at it for 20 years and has run more 5Ks than she cares to count.

Wise works in higher education sustainability, is a certified Master Recycler and is a proud solar array owner. She writes for a number of green-leaning companies including Tom's of Maine, Good Nature Organic Lawn Care and BankPurely.

When not typing, she can be found running on her local Metropark trails, hiking with her family or digging into a good book. Wise lives in a Cleveland suburb with her husband, young son and two cats.
