My name is Alicia and my running journey started three years ago when I was told I would never be able to run again. One year after hearing that news I completed my first half marathon. Fast forward to present day and I have completed 50 races, including 10 half marathons, 2 gnarly trail races, and every distance in between. This fall will be my first full marathon. Though I’ve had my ups and downs, I wouldn’t trade my place in this community for anything. The people I’ve met, the places I’ve been, and the sites I’ve seen in the last three years have truly impacted my life in an incredibly positive way. Other than running I love hiking, cooking, skydiving, weiner dogs, and donuts. I am so thankful to be apart of the BMO Phoenix Ambassador Team and to head back to one of my favorite race courses (hello, downhill race anyone???). Happy training everyone and see you next year in sunny Mesa, AZ!
