I am the new organizer for USA FIT Albuquerque (aka Albuquerque Fit).  My journey here has been rewarding and challenging, but most of all truly enjoyable. Running a marathon will “Change Your Life”.  It certainly has for me.  In 2014, I made the resolution to finally knock it off my bucket list.  I did not have a running background.  I tried training on my own by reading books, following various online programs, but I was running without any real direction.  Running alone was not very fun.  Then I joined the Albuquerque Fit Summer Program that June.  I never knew there was such a large group of runners – all ages, all levels of ability, all shapes and sizes and most importantly all friendly and supportive.  My once dreaded runs turned to miles of joy!  I had running buddies!  The training programs that Albuquerque Fit provides really works.  They get you to the finish line with a smile on your face. I ran my 1st marathon (Long Beach) in October 2014.  I thought I was one and done, but I ran my 2nd in February 2015 (Phoenix Rock & Roll).  Same year I ran another marathon, a 45K & 50K ultramarathon and my running journey continues.  With diligent training through our programs, my running continues to improve as I have accomplished recent PR’s in the half and full marathons. Running is not just about races.  It’s about relationships.  Running with other people will make your running fun!  We have pace groups, run-walk philosophy and knowledgeable and very friendly coaches that will be there for you every step of the way!  I look forward to seeing you this season!
