Hi! I’m Beverly Gordon, a wife and mother of two who loves running. I am also a licensed Pharmacist.
My passion for running and its health benefits has inspired me to encourage (coach) other women just starting out in the sport. I understand that, with a family and career, time is at a premium! I have also experienced that running is more than miles logged, it’s about the journey. Running provides personal empowerment and the sense of fulfillment that comes with achieving a goal, as well as making yourself and your health a priority.
I took up running later in life and have fallen in love with a sport that, in recent years, has welcomed a new category of participants - female recreational racers. I desire to make a sport that can seem intimidating, fun and empowering.
As of October 2017 I have run 7 half marathons and a 30km race and am currently training for a full-marathon.
