Lesley Frudd - Marathon, Ontario, Canada
Lesley Frudd is a caregiver to her 2 year-old grandson and a full-time online student, studying Business Accounting. She is new to running and is motivated by virtual races to reap the benefits of running without the crowds of live races. Living in a remote location allows her to walk with her dogs while enjoying the beautiful surroundings and decreasing her anxiety. She has a treadmill but prefers to be outdoors.
Lesley’s greatest challenge stems from a car accident in 2009, which left her with chronic pain, including fibromyalgia. Getting moving is helping her stay fit. Racing improves her motivation and sense of accomplishment. Lesley hopes to continue her journey for weight loss and overall health and fitness.
