Tell us about your running accomplishment that you’re most proud of and why:

-When I started in November, I wasn’t able to run more than 10 minutes straight through.  Since I started training with Matt, I have lost 75lbs, have run several half marathons and a full marathon and no longer do the walk/run method.  I have battled through illness, surgery, and nursing school but have managed to stay consistent and keep improving.

Favorite Workout:  Track repeats

Most Challenging Workout:  Long MP runs

Favorite part about being a runner: I’ve learned a lot about myself and how far I can really push my body.  It’s helped me become confident again, and I love inspiring others to try and reach goals that they never thought were possible 🙂

Best races you’ve ever run: Columbus Marathon 2007 (4:52), Cleveland ½ marathon (2:15:21), 5k (27:21)

Running words of wisdom:  NEVER GIVE UP!!
