Meet Your Mentors
I started running in 2009 to run a half marathon. I’ve now run 28 half marathon and a full marathon! The more I am able to run, the easier it becomes. Sometimes life can be hectic and I find it hard to keep up. I need to keep up with running so I can keep up with my kids! I usually squeeze my runs in early in the morning or over a lunch break. Having a steady running partner also helps me!
I have been running since I was a teenager and I now enjoy running and racing with all 3 of my kids, 2 dogs, and one husband. I also compete in triathlons and duathlons, but love that you can almost always go for a run! I occasionally race with an Athletes in Tandem participant and love being able to share the joy of running with those who cannot run alone. When I am not playing outside, I work as a health coach empowering others to move towards a healthier lifestyle. If you see a woman running in south Fort Collins with a golden retriever and a brindled boxer mix, it is probably me, so say hi!
I’ve been running with the club for around 3 years, ever since I moved to Fort Collins from southern California. I‘m a senior at CSU—this spring, I will graduate with a BS in geology and a minor in history. My pronouns are they/them/theirs, and I love dogs. In my free time, away from school and work, I enjoy running, reading, and knitting.
Hello and Welcome to Running U! My name is Dunja (doon-ya) and I have been running on and off since I was a teenager which is ages ago. I am not fast at all, but I have endurance and I that helped me train for a few Half-Marathons. My goal is to run a Marathon in the next 5 years. I signed up to be a mentor, because I love volunteering and be part of the Fort Collins running community, but also because I hope, it will give support/inspire some folks to go out and run – all you need is a good pair of running shoes and socks! Remember “It doesn’t matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop.” Confucius
