NOVEMBER HIGHLIGHTS… Lili & Dora!

by

I’d like to take a minute to recognize some recent accomplishments by some amazing gals that are part of our WOFB family.  It’s a honor to know them and a pleasure to be around them.

First up, Dora…  this young, 48-year old mother and wife, just earned her Spartan Trifecta medal.  What does that mean?  To be a member of the Spartan Trifecta Tribe means you have finished one of each Spartan races –  Sprint (3+ miles of obstacle racing), the Super (8+ miles), the Beast (12+ miles) – in a calendar year (January 1st – December 31st), anywhere in the world.  Despite some setbacks along the way, Dora persevered, traveling from city to city to earn this medal.  In the process, she ended up finishing 2 Beast Spartans, also while training for her soon-to-be 1st triathlon, WAY TO GO DORA!!  You make us proud!

Next up… Lili, a 35-year old mother and wife who just won’t stop!  Lili caught the Marathon bug after  running her first half marathon in 2009.  “Once I did that, I knew anything was possible.” she says.  She has since run 4 marathons to date, improving her finish time with each race.  Her first full Marathon was NYC in Nov. 2009 with a time of 5:08:11 (11:45 average pace); 5 years and 2 kids later, she just recently completed the Chicago Marathon (Oct. 2014) with a finish time of 3:42:13 (8:29 average pace)!   Her goal was to qualify for the Boston Marathon, but fell short by only 4 minutes (9 second pace difference).  “Needless to say, I will be giving it another shot before the running season ends.” she says.  GO FOR IT!  Amazing drive and so inspirational!

    Lili that pace, wow, I bow down to you. Much respect for the training. Congrats!!

    Rima, thanks for the shout-out, to think 2-years ago I started running & hated it but then mid-Dec 2012 I joined WOFB & found my journey to fit. Can’t wait to discover more adventures in 2015.

    Love you all xoxo
