CSU Alumna Alexa Lee Riczo Is Runner’s World Cover Girl

Alexa Lee Riczo is always on the run – so maybe it’s no surprise to find this former Vikings soccer standout on the cover of the September 2015 issue of Runner’s World magazine.

“Before I go to work, I run every morning for about 45 minutes with my two pit bulls,” said Riczo, who lives in Brooklyn, N.Y.

She moved there after graduating from Cleveland State University four years ago with a bachelor’s degree in education.

Riczo is a model with the Wilhelmina International agency, which led her to the Runner’s World gig.

“I’ve been getting a lot of texts from friends who saw the magazine,” she told ENGAGED. “I’ve heard from a lot of people I haven’t talked to in a long time. It’s really cool.”
