It was my lucky day when I connected with Alysha through her RDMT Facebook page!We soon met at the 2018 RunDisney Marathon Weekend. Following the marathon, Alysha encouraged me to sign up for Dopey 2019. What a journey that was! I relied on Alysha’s encouragement, advice and support while I worked through the training miles, as well as at the races.I credit her for getting me to all four finish lines successfully! Currently training for Marathon weekend 2024 with Alysha who continues to be my motivational running friend.
I have known Alysha for almost 4 years through her facebook pages and got to meet her at the Dopey in 2019. She has always been very encouraging
and positive. She always provides great input and ideas
when others ask for advice.
Several years ago I remember being part of this motivational facebook group, and you posted that you had completed your first full marathon. In your post, you said something like “Now I am a marathoner.”Those words inspired me to complete my first marathon in 2020, because I wanted to say “I am a marathoner,” too! Five little words moved me to complete it! Thanks for the motivation!
I am working with a coach right now to find out what I want in my career.One of the assignments was to write down people who inspire me and Alysha is one of those people!Her kindness is inspirational.She has so much patience with everyone, we see the same questions multiple times a year in the facebook groups, and she will answer them thoroughly and as many times as needed.No question is silly or weird.I've metAlysha only twice in real life, but she is a kind and warm hearted person.I admire her determination, running is the easiest example for me to articulate that, all those training miles she has done to get to her goals is so amazing to see!I love seeing her stories on instagram where she tackled great distances.I have so much respect for her virtual marathons!That takes a lot of willpower to do a marathon virtually.I am so happy you're a host on the Rise and Run podcast, I always enjoy listening.
