Molly grew up in Elmira, New York and ran Track and Cross Country at Elmira Notre Dame High School. She was a 10 time All American at the University of Notre Dame. She currently lives and trains in Providence, Rhode Island with her husband Kurt Benninger, who is coaching New England Distance athletes as well as volunteer assistant coaching at Brown.
