In 2012, I officially declared myself a runner! With a goal of weight loss and better fitness, I began running five years ago on my sister Mary’s recommendation. I started out as a “run for funner”, which turned out to be anything but. Struggling, aching, and not seeing improved fitness or PR’s, I decided to don the red Fusion shirt. With the group’s encouragement, as well as proper training and consistency, my times are dropping and my overall health has improved! I once thought marathoners were a bit nuts, so I’ve stuck to the half marathons. But alas, I’ve been seduced by the allure of the 26.2 miles and will begin training for my very first marathon. It would not have happened without Fusion!
