About me

Industry Education
Occupation teacher and running coach
Location Tennessee, United States
Introduction I'm Donna, a mom of three, a teacher, and an "adult-onset athlete." I've been running since June 2007. At first I could not run 1/4 mile, but twenty-two months later, I completed my first 26.2. In 2012, I ran my first ultramarathon--a 50K. Running has been a huge blessing in my life. Since 2009, I've been a Road Runners Clubs of America certified running coach helping other runners achieve their goals. Discovering running at age 36 changed my life. After all, "It's never too late to be what you might have been." --George Eliot. Follow me on Twitter @runslikephoebe.

Never mind the turtle. Don't you think you're sure to win?

Not so much. "Slow and steady" rarely wins the race.
