From pre-diabetic to marathoner, one runner’s story

Howdy, friends.

As part of my work with 605 Running Co., I’m doing a monthly feature on local runners. Greg at the store told me to talk to Alyssa Schmidt, who had recently run her first marathon.

We sat down a week ago, and she told me about how she looked at the women in her family, all of whom are diabetic, and realized she needed to take a hard look at her life. So, she did.

She failed along the way, more than once, but she kept picking herself up and trying again, and now she’s healthier, happier and well on her way to a new lifestyle she can not only maintain but enjoy living.

It was awesome to talk with her. I hope you’ll like her journey as much as I did.

Happy running.
