Hi! My name is Malena Larsen. For my full-time gig, I am a content writer for a small digital agency in Minneapolis—I also do some freelance writing on the side. When I’m not working or writing, I enjoy camping, watercolor painting, checking out Minnesota breweries, bouldering, and, of course, running!
I started running during my first year of college and quickly joined the cross country and track team at Augsburg. Since graduating, I’ve run a couple marathons and ultras as well as the occasional 5k, 10k, or half marathon here and there. My goal is to complete a 100 mile trail race in the near future!
I am a passionate and driven person. When I have a task or goal in mind, I am always determined to get ‘er done! I know that my drive would translate over to my work with Run Minnesota if given the opportunity.
I have experience in content writing, copywriting, journalism, blogging, social media marketing, and more. Other than writing, I also have experience with fundraising, coaching, event planning, and editing.
Because most of my experience is in marketing, writing, and social media management, I would love the opportunity to amp up the brand, voice, and marketing for Run Minnesota. I think I could bring new ideas and a fresh outlook to the website, social media, events, and more for the organization
