Meet our Solemate Amanda!

Meet our Solemate Amanda!

Hey!!!  My name is Amanda, former couch potato turned runner 🙂  I am a wife, mother of 2 fabulous kids, Realtor and 2nd season GOTR coach.

I don’t have an athletic bone in my body and used to live a fairly sedentary lifestyle.  2 years ago, my husband had a terrible heart issue and the reality of almost losing him was the wake up call I needed.  Thank goodness he is healthy now, but I used that scare as a springboard to start living a more healthy life, so I had the best chance of being around for my family.  I decided to take up running and I had never run in my life EVER.  I couldn’t even run a quarter mile, but I signed up for a 5K and was determined to train so I could run the whole thing and I DID!!!!  I was the most proud of myself as I had ever been.  Fast forward a few months and I decided to sign up for my 1st half marathon, the Wild Half.  This is way outside of my comfort zone, but I know I can do anything I set my mind to.

My daughter is so proud of me and I want to show her and all other young girls that they really can do anything.  GOTR is near and dear to my heart and I want every girl to have the opportunity to participate in this phenomenal program.
