Rochelle Sweetman joins The 437 Project with over 20 years of recreational running under her belt. Growing up, Rochelle would ride her bike as her mother regularly ran a 3 mile route near their home. Inspired by her mom, Rochelle began running in college and continued into law school, where she became friends with classmates who were training for a marathon. Always up for a challenge, Rochelle registered for her first official race-the 2003 Twin Cities Marathon.
Since then, Rochelle has completed numerous races, including 9 marathons and several 200-mile relays with her best running friends. Rochelle credits running with helping her maintain her mental and physical health while juggling the demands of work and family. When not running, Rochelle can be found working as a risk management consultant at Marsh and McLennan Agency and enjoying the company of her husband, two kids, and two dogs. Rochelle's favorite place to run is any South Dakota gravel road, surrounded by the sights, sounds, and smells of her childhood growing up in Miller, SD.
