Joy began running with us in November of 2015 after she quit smoking about a year prior. She competes in about 30 events and in 2018, won our women’s Back of the Pack Series. One of her biggest accomplishments was being fast enough to get out of the back of the pack series for many of our events. Currently, Joy is 3rd in our Back of the Pack Series and 4th in the 5k Series with already 33 events run this year. Joy has aspirations to eventually complete a half-marathon someday as running has given her a sense of accomplishment! Joy says she runs our events because of the supportive community and all of the awards you can receive. Come out to our next event and you will always see Joy running with her ponytails which help keep her balanced and focused.
