Yesenia began her running journey after being inspired when cheering for her husband at his first marathon.
Having never ran before, she set to train for her first half marathon in 2008. She was instantly hooked and has been running ever since, everything from a local 5K to a 55K up in the mountains.
The running community has motivated Yesenia to attempt new challenges and create goals she never thought she could attain before. She even learned to swim to complete her first triathlon in 2018.
What Yesenia enjoys most about running is the friendships and camaraderie it brings.
She loves giving back and helping other runners achieve their goals.
When Yesenia is not running, you can find her hiking or traveling with her family.
