The Disney marathon was my first marathon in 2000. Since then I’ve run six marathons and a countless number of half marathons. Staying motivated has always been a challenge, both when I was a beginner and as a veteran runner alike. From my experience, running with a group like USA FIT Miami is incredibly motivating and keeps me coming back. Our group not only provides a proven training schedule and a support network, but a means to be held accountable and stick with the training. So, with each new year, I look forward to our Saturday USA FIT Miami runs, because I know there will be amazing friends there to share the experience.
