Runner, filmmaker make a life in Mammoth
It’s almost too much.
Too much drive, talent and accomplishment out of one couple: Alexi Pappas and Jeremy Teicher.
Alexi, the poet, actor, and professional distance runner, married the Jeremy, the award-winning filmmaker, in June of this year. Since they met at Dartmouth College in 2009, while Jeremy was a senior and Alexi a sophomore, they have viewed their career as a single organism with many sides: athletic, cinematic, and literary.
In 2017 they relocated to Mammoth Lakes from Eugene, Oregon for the next step in their career(s).
“Here’s what I love about Mammoth,”Jeremy said, “it feels so conducive to being really focused. I could be at a meeting in LA tomorrow… and for Alexi, it’s the best spot in the world for marathon training.”
On Sunday, Alexi will toe the line at the Chicago Marathon. It will be the first marathon of the already illustrious athletic arm of her and Jeremy’s career. Alexi represented Greece at the 2016 Rio Olympics in the 10,000 meters.
