Hi everyone !! My name is Samantha Doner !! I am a swim coach in mammoth lakes Ca and I love to run !! I decided a few months ago that I'd like to start running halfs and full marathon to show my athletes that if you put your mind to it anything is possible because although I've had great success in the swim arena I've never been a great runner. I oftened tripped walking as a child and I still do even as an adult !! Over the past few Months I've been lucky enough to win three halfs !!! Showing my athletes and the people around me that the sky is the limit if you work hard !! And I'm going to continue encouraging and helping everyone in my life achieve their own goals and be the best that they can be!!I am blessed and honored to be fundraising for the MEB foundation charity for the 2016 New York Marathon !!! I was lucky enough to be chosen just a few hours ago to be on this team, and I cannot wait to run !!
