About The Heavyweight Runner

I’m a 32 year old private music teacher, entrepreneur, graduate student and extreme weight loss achiever. I love to swim, bike, run, and lift heavy things as much as I can; long rides and runs are my favorite! I train to run full marathons, Olympic distance triathlons and will compete in my first ½ Ironman distance triathlon on May 5th. I have a pup, Penny Lane (of the Beatles fame) and a deaf kitty, Boo, who are the fluffy loves of my life. Together, we live in our townhouse apartment. After being obese for most of my life, I have learned I’m capable of anything I set my mind to. I have a renewed sense of purpose. I started The Heavyweight Runner Facebook page in October 2012 as a hobby, to motivate a few people along the way. I never dreamed how quickly the page would expand or just how many lives I’d get to interact with on a daily basis from all across the globe. On the rare occasion I have spare time I enjoy roller coasters, knitting, piano bars and singing my heart out to cover songs at my own piano.
