My name is Eva Keohane I am a former D2 collegiate runner, cyclist, scientist, photographer, piano player, granola girl (I love camping/hiking/Picky Apple Crumble Granola). Growing up my parents new I was going to be a runner. Apparently I would run for hours in my backyard trying to catch butterflies- I do not think I caught many as I would run and run. In high school I ran cross country, track, played volleyball, and was an avid cross country skier. In college I studied chemistry and ran the 5k/10k. I found great success in the classroom and on xc trails in college in my first year. Although I deeply struggled with an eating disorder and ended up going through many injury cycles. I found help in two eating disorder treatment center and now am doing much better. I am getting my Ph.D. in agricultural chemistry/ food science at Colorado State University. My goal is to teach in a college food science department in a way that shows how all foods are fuel. This way I can inspire future RDs to help others Hal their relationship with food. Living in Colorado helped my slow down, enjoy the outdoors, fall in love with running again. I am currently training for half marathons. My friend and coach actually has a podcast (Distance Daddies) that Lauren was interviewed on recently. I will be racing for the Front Range Elite Team in Fort Collins, CO. I also love to gravel ride with I found while being injured and will be doing a few gravel races next spring! Picky Bars helped me fuel my busy lifestyle, as most my runs are early in the morning so you can almost always find me eating a Chai and Catch Me bar before. Picky bars mission statement- Real food fuels- helped me fix my relationship with food and made me such a happier person and runner. I would be honored to be a Picky Bar Ambassador so I can spread the word about how great Picky bars are!!
