My name is Megan Leto and this will be my fourth season coaching with Girls On The Run.  I have four children, two girls and two boys ages 10, 9, 7 and 5.  I have always enjoyed sports and being active but a few years ago took up running and fell in love with it.  I have completed several 5 and 10k’s, a few mud runs, a few half marathons and one full marathon.  When I heard about GOTR from my pediatrician I instantly wanted to be part of it.  I helped get it up and running at our school and we are entering in our 5th season.   My running days were put on hold last year with a breast cancer diagnosis.  After healing from a double mastectomy I was able to resume running again during chemotherapy.  Some days I felt great and others not so great, but I knew I had to keep going.  I ran the Newport Liberty Half Marathon last September one day before my last radiation treatment.  Physically I wasn’t ready, but mentally I had to do it.  This year I want to give back to the future GOTR Coaches by raising money for scholarships that allow our girls to grow in to amazing humans.
