My name is Becca Myers and I live in Gilbert, AZ with my husband and two daughters (6 years old and 1 ½ year old). I began running when I was in graduate school. A friend of mine wanted to start running and asked if I would be her running partner. We started with 5Ks but quickly moved to 10K and completed our first half marathon in 2005. It was not fast but I was hooked. I’ve completed two marathons, over a dozen half marathons, two 10 miler races, and at least ten 10Ks. Although I have been able to experience many different courses, I have to admit that I have loved Mesa-Phx Marathon courses since the beginning. I took some time off when I had my daughters, but I’ve caught the running bug again. Along with running races, I am also part of the running groups East Valley Runner (Gilbert, AZ), and Arizona Road Racers (Phoenix, AZ). I have been a Race Director the Arizona Road Racers’ Summer Series races in Gilbert and Tempe for two years. Every year I am apart of these groups, I am encouraged by how many new runners come out and participate as well as how many children are involved. Along with running, I am also part of ASU Young Alumni, so I hope to see all of the Sun Devil at this race! I’m excited to help promote and be an Ambassador for Mesa-Phx Marathon.
