I started running in 2000 after my husband (Coach Eddy) came home one day and said, Hey lets train to run a marathon together! My first response was, How long is a marathon? When he told me 26.2 miles I thought he was nuts! He was the runner not me! But we trained with a marathon training group just like this one and 5 months later crossed the finish line together at the Walt Disney World marathon. I will never forget that feeling of finishing my first marathon. Since then I have run over a dozen marathons, 4 half marathons, 2 triathlon’s and way too many 5Ks/10Ks to count. I started Miami FIT because after years of training by myself for various marathons I realized I missed running with a group of people and the Miami Lakes area did not have an organized running/walking group. Plus I enjoy helping new runners and walkers reach their goals of completing their first marathon or half marathon.
