Meet our Solemate MaryEllen!

“Three years ago, I joined a running group with the hopes of getting into shape and making some new friends. I started with the Couch to 5k program and instantly fell in love with running and racing. Since then I have run numerous races including a full marathon.
 
The love and support I get from my teammates on Jersey Women Strong has enabled me to achieve goals I never thought possible, both in running and in life.
 
I found out about GOTR from a JWS teammate and decided to coach a team this Spring because GOTR has the same mission as my running group- giving girls confidence in themselves to achieve any goal, helping them feel connected to each other while they work towards those goals, and giving back to the community.
 
Also, as a mom of three grown daughters, I am happy to be a part of something that empowers young girls to be their best selves!
 
 
I am excited to run my 15th half marathon- the Superhero half marathon in May – to raise money for the GOTR scholarship fund so more girls can have the chance to be a part of such an amazing program! “
