Welcome to USA FIT Tampa Bay! My journey into long distance running started in 2008 with a goal to enter my 40’s fit. Unable to run even a half  block when I started, I really struggled with running. Thankfully, a friend invited me to Tampa Bay Fit. I was given a proper schedule and training, education through the seminars, and the miles went by so much faster with friends. In 2012, I finished my second marathon – happier, healthier , and 30 pounds lighter. Through Tampa Bay Fit, I finally found an exercise I could stick with AND have fun!

I am a native to St. Petersburg, married with four children. Serving as organizer and coach of Tampa Bay Fit, for several years, is my small part to pay it forward and help others in my community change their lives. This will be my 8th year with TBF, and will be leading the Red Half group for the 2017-2018 season. I have a passion for inspiring people to run and enjoy encouraging them to meet their goals. If running helped someone like me, running can change anyone’s life!
