Former midfield soccer player for the Vikings Alexa Lee Riczo appears on the cover of Runner’s World Magazine for the September issue.

Riczo graduated from Cleveland State University four years ago, earning her degree in education.

She works as a personal trainer, nutritional adviser, athlete and model for Wilhelmina International.
Her modeling agency work was the stepping stone to her appearance on the cover of this magazine, and most of the modeling that she does is related to fitness. She has also done shoots for “Shape,” “Self” and “Women’s Health.”

Running has always been a passion of hers.

Now living in Brooklyn, N.Y., she runs every day, including training in the morning with her dogs.
She moved there after graduating from Cleveland State.

Her picture on the cover of “Runner’s World” was a great way for her to reconnect with old friends, hearing from people she has not talked to in a long time.

Riczo’s goal is to provide people with her knowledge of fitness and help them pursue a healthy lifestyle.
