Howdy! My name is Natalie, I was born deaf and raised in Texas. I started running when I was twelve-year-old and just turned 40 years old this year. I woke up one morning and decided to give a marathon another try, especially after I vowed myself not to run another one. Ever. That mind set I had was twelve years ago, and it’s amazing how our human mind works. I chose the Mesa-PHX Marathon because of its beautiful scenic point-to-point course from the Usery Mountain Regional Park to Mesa Riverview and many runners PR’d (personal record) on this course. It’s a win-win deal!
Happy training and see y’all there!
