Amanda Brooks

Amanda never considered running a 5k until one of her friends encouraged her to sign up for a local spring race.  She instantly became hooked and ran her first 10k that summer and first half-marathon that fall.  A year later she completed her first marathon at the Chicago marathon in 2012.   Since then Amanda has completed 10 marathons, at least 30 halfs, and many more 5ks and 10ks.  No matter the distance, Amanda is addicted to that deep sense of pride that comes with running and racing.  She enjoys helping others achieve their running goals through pacing!
