Betsy was a short-distance runner and race-walker in middle and high school, but barely ran 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 4 years ago and has since completed three half-Ironman races with her twin brother. She has coached for Austin Fit for two years now and is excited to help lead a new group of runners in the heat this summer!
