Freedom Yang

Liu “Freedom” is an ordinary mother of two children from China. She now lives in Orange County, California. She was encouraged by her friends and started running at the age of 39. During her entire life, she always wished that she could participate in all types of sports and activities. However, busy work and home chores kept her away from chasing her dreams for almost two decades. Now she is ready to awaken the sunny and athletic girl inside her.

It only took her two months to prepare for her first half marathon and only one year for her first full marathon.  Now she has finished eight half marathons within two and a half years and improved her Personal Best(PB) in every race. Besides running, she swims, practices Yoga and does barbell exercises. Now she looks like a 29 years old girl and has gained more confidence.

Every weekend she runs Long Slow Distance (LSD) runs with her team members in different parks and on different trails. She believes that it brings her great joy to help others meet their training goals and fulfill their wishes to become a better runners. Her amiable personality also makes her a great fit for a pacer.
