I began running in my mid 20’s, but not competitively. Running to me at the time was more of a way to be healthy and stay fit. It was not until the summer of 2011 that a co-worker asked if I would be interested in running the Aramco half marathon. I became overwhelmed by the thought of running over 13 miles straight. But, in spite of that I set my fears aside and decided to take the challenge. I became so excited after finishing the Aramco half and learning that my time was 1:49. Afterwards I started signing up for other races in the area. To date I’ve run over 10 10k’s, 10 5k’s, 14 half marathons, and over 7 marathons and including The Boston Marathon, New York and Chicago. Check out all of my races on Athlinks.com. It was all the hard work and training that got me there.
I joined Bay Area Fit in the summer of 2012. With the training that I have received from the club I was able to improve my time over the years and just become a better more competitive runner. I did this by hard work and committing to the program. Not only did I increase my running time but I’ve also gained countless friendships. Now I am a better more experienced runner, thanks to USA Fit Bay Area. We have a great coaching staff who will definitely get you to the finish line with proven results. Come run with a fellow runner/walker. We will help you every step of the way – no matter what your goal. If your goal is a Marathon/Half Marathon, if you are walking or running, Bay Area Fit will get you the training necessary to get you to the finish line. I am looking forward to a new season with BAF.
