Hi, my name is Teri Romero.
I am 45 years old.
I am the mother of three.
I’ve been married 25 years.
I have my fourth grandbaby due in April.
I begin running approximately 5 years ago. Last year alone, I ran 9 half marathons.
Running has changed my life !!! 10 years ago I was addicted to painkillers because I have arthritis in several parts of my body that keep me from being active. I was not in any pain due to all the painkillers, but I wasn’t living life either.
I started going to the gym. I began to walk and slowly quit all my pain meds. I love hiking , bike riding but mostly running. I didn’t necessarily start running to lose weight. It just happened. I went from a size 12 to a size 6. My eating habits have been transformed. I have so much energy and I am very healthy.
I have run several duathlons, 5ks and 10ks but my favorite is the half marathon. My goal is to run a full marathon in 2015.
