Running Experience and Accomplishments:
Courtney is originally from Pottstown, PA but now resides in Leesburg. She has been an athlete for most of her life, playing both field hockey and lacrosse as a child and into college. She started long distance running when a friend bet me $50 that I couldn’t finish a marathon. Well, she finished and 10 years, has put a few more marathon notches into her belt and is still going. Also, this year she is a 2017 Ambassador for both Destination Races and the Navy Air Force Half Marathon and Five Miler. She feels that running comes with its own lifestyle and it happens to be one that suits her well. She feels that it is much more about the journey than it is about the destination. Don’t get her wrong we all want to cross the finish line but it is the experience of getting there that is the important part. She has met some of her closest friends through running and it has taken her to some of the most beautiful places. Every run is an adventure in and of it self.
