Karen

Karen worked in the education industry for over 20 years as a teacher, coach, counselor, and administrator prior to opening Get Fit.  She was fitted for shoes at a specialty running store and started training just like many of you, completing a walk/run program until she could run consistently for 30 minutes. Since that time in 2001, she has run many 5K's, marathons, and ultra marathons.

Her passion for education is the main reason she opened Get Fit
