Organizer - RRCA Certified & Hill Work Coach

I have always been a fairly active person with a background in dance, aerobics, and weight training. Until I joined USA FIT Cypress, running was not my exercise of choice. Luckily, a friend asked me if I wanted to join USA Fit Cypress. She shared with me about the camaraderie, educational seminars, race medals, and socials, so I decided to give it a try.

At first, I was afraid that I would hold everyone back because at the time I couldn’t even run 1 mile without stopping. I didn’t know what to expect, but went ahead and attended my first group run. There I found out that they had several groups I could choose from and found one that fit my ability and pace. I continued through the season following the USA FIT training program and implementing the information I learned from the seminars.  At the end of this first season, I finished my first half marathon! After this, I was hooked and running became my exercise of choice. Since then, I have participated in 2 Marathons, 21 Half Marathons, 2 Triathlon races, and 4 Ten Miler races and am looking forward to doing more.

Joining USA FIT Cypress has been one of my best decisions – I’ve learned a lot, made new friends, and achieved more than I thought possible. It’s amazing what a confidence boost achieving your goals can be.

Now as a coach and co-organizer, I enjoy encouraging and helping others achieve their goals. USA FIT Cypress is truly a positive and supportive group. Come join us! It can change your life.
