Aaron Riddle


Aaron Riddle Running RiddlesAaron (or Daddy) is the father-figure of team Running Riddles. He works at Lord Fairfax Community College managing the school’s website, visual branding, photography, and graphic design projects. He is also a court-appointed Virginia wedding officiant, a wedding photographer, and a professional cartoonist.

He loves living the healthy lifestyle and following all things fitness-related. After playing high school football as an offensive lineman, Aaron lost over 100lbs and began getting serious about fitness after graduating from college at UMBC. He credits his wife and head of team Running Riddles, Christie, with helping him to drop lingering unhealthy habits such as drinking diet soda and chewing gum.

After taking up running as part of another work out program he was following at the time, Aaron caught the running bug and ran his first marathon in 2012. In 2016 he got serious about his running goals and took up the challenge to run a marathon in every state by the time he is 50 years old.

An early bird in every essence of the word, Aaron is up every weekday at 5 a.m. (sometimes earlier) to get in his run.
