EVENT: 2015 Boston Marathon
Diane Berberian is a woman who knows no limits. Living with Macular Degeneration (MD), Diane has become one of the most celebrated and successful female Ironman athletes in the sport. Never racing the same long distance course twice, Diane thrives on taming the challenges that the sport of Paratriathlon offers; earning her the nickname of “The Iron Maven”.
With the aid of a sighted guide, Diane has pushed herself to remain competitive in a sport that draws only the strongest of character to it – the Ironman; a 2.4 mile swim, a 112 mile bike and 26.2 mile run.
Diane’s drive and passion is endless, as she continues to pursue excellence in sport and in life. She is the definition of champion in para-athletics and as an educator to the next generation of para-talent.
Team With A Vision is thrilled to have Diane running, for the first time, in the B.A.A. Distance Medley, which consists of the B.A.A. 5k just two days before the Boston Marathon, the B.A.A. 10k June 21st, and finally the B.A.A Half Marathon October 11th. Diane will be running alongside guide Megan Birch-McMichael, a freelance writer who has had numerous articles featured in Zelle by Runner’s World.
