Ellen Alexander
Happy Cat Events

I love event planning!

My name is Ellen Alexander (formerly Ellen Womeldorf) and I have been an avid runner since 1984. Although I have a full time job as a flower wholesaler (cubicle life), my passions are coaching and event planning!

I have been an ultra runner for about 7 years and the 24 hour race is my favorite challenge. My best athletic quality is perseverance, I was not born with any speed. I train with CrossFit and similar plus love the rowing machine and kayaking. I believe that cross training is SOOO IMPORTANT especially as we age. Ask me about the best ways to cross train!

My goals

I do not love my full time job. I recently realized that I had to BE HAPPY somehow with my work. I squeeze in coaching bootcamp classes 3 days a week at WISC Fitness Academy, which I love, but I am so excited about starting Happy Cat Events and making my dreams come true! My hope is to give back to the community and to challenge runners of all fitness levels with events so fun you forget how hard they are!
