My Anytime Story
I started by making myself get up at 5 a.m. three days a week and go to Anytime Fitness before work. When that became routine and I started to lose weight and feel more energized, I started getting up at 4 a.m. so I could exercise longer. I slowly started adding more days.
I always dreamed of running a marathon, but it seemed so far fetched. But with all the hard work I put in, I started doing 2- to 5-mile races. I did my first half marathon a few years ago. I felt top of the world! This year I decided to be crazy and sign up for the full marathon. I finished in 4 hours 28 minutes! Most of my training was on the treadmill at Anytime Fitness between 4-5 a.m. With two kids it is the only time I could find to train. Without Anytime Fitness I never would have gotten this far. I am in the best shape of my life! I would love to become a personal trainer and help others become healthy.
