Betsy was a runner and race-walker in middle and high school, but didn’t run at all during college and the years after. She returned to running when she moved from Boston to Austin and wanted to get in better shape before her wedding. To keep up her motivation after the wedding, she signed up with Austin FIT to train for her first half-marathon. She has run with Austin FIT ever since, minus taking about a year off twice to have her two sons. She took up triathlons two years ago and has since completed two half-Ironman races with her twin brother. This year she is an assistant coach for the half marathon and is so excited to lead a group, see old running friends, and make many new ones.
