Maria - 2:00 Half-Marathon assistant coach

Welcome Coach Maria! Maria will be leading the 2:00 half-marathon group while Coach Renata is on maternity leave.

“You are braver than you know and stronger than you seem.” Congratulations on starting or continuing your running adventure.  I was told after a pretty serious back injury that I would probably never be able to run, and it took years (and a nudge from a close friend) for me to decide to try it anyway.  I ran my first half marathon in 2011 and my personal running journey began.  Running has made me physically and mentally stronger.  It has gotten me through my hardest moments and has also been a way to celebrate my happiest ones.  I have run 3 full and around 20 half marathons since I began (Half PR 1:55).  When I’m not training, I’m running after my twin girls and coordinating the Diabetes Prevention Program and teaching healthy eating, fitness classes, healthy lifestyle change-related classes at Houston Methodist.
