Nancy Trejo - Everett, WA
Nancy, pictured here with her three rescued dogs Roman, Chloe, and Dexter, started running in 2015. Despite neurological issues that doctors think may be early symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis, Nancy has completed more than 114 virtual races and 86 live races in just a few short years. She began doing virtual races in 2016 to collect dog-themed race swag, but they eventually became a great way for her group of friends to stay active together. She is signed up for at least 26 more live races for this year and already has a few lined up for 2018. Nancy says that she will not accept defeat. She works hard to stay fit and is determined not to let her condition get the best of her.
