In 2016 I was at my highest weight ever 250 lbs. At the time I worked for a Charter school named Soledad Enrichment Action. During that year I started working running / hiking / strength / workouts and eating healthy. I was an inspiration for not only my students but my co-workers. In about a year I was 70 lbs down and felt like never before. I'm the athletic instructor from my site, I created a running team of 10 students, we ran all over L.A, Downtown, Silver Lake, Westlake, Koreatown, and South LA.
Shortly after Students Run LA was at our site the journey to our first marathon began. I have completed 3 full marathons and I'm hungry for more.
