Donna is a life-long runner. It all started in high school, as part of the track team. Then, running became a part of who she is, inseparable from everything else. And there’s a lot of that everything else. She has a busy home—married with 4 children under 11. Her work, as a preschool teacher, is surrounded by the buzz of constant youthful energy. That might seem like a lot to some, but Donna loves the whirlwind of her family and her work with children. As a balance to that busy schedule, running allows her much needed time away from the hustle of life to focus on herself.
For Donna, running is also about connection. More than anything, it’s about friendship. Donna has a running buddy who supports her and pushes her to be better.
