I have been a runner since the age of 9, I never liked distance running and now I love it! Through the years I have battled with severe obesity and illness. After running and completeing NYC marathon in 2013 I became very sick and my healh was spiraling out of control. I tried to run, but my asthma, and rapid weight gain from all the medications prohibbited me from doing what I love. I was still able to give back as an Assitant Head Coach for St. Andrew Avellino Track and Field team. I am proud to say I took charge of my health and had weight loss surgery, there was no way after 20+ years of doing what I love I could ever part with my passion for running. Shortly after I was hit by a car as a Pedestrian, it has been a very painful and traumatic experience. So running is just about the only time when I am pain free. As long as you have hope and mental determination any goal is acheivable. "the task ahead of you is never greater than the strength within you"
