Hi, I’m Anastasia and I run. I run a lot. So far, I have run 11 marathons, have done 1 half-IronMan (yes, they have those) and multiple smaller races in between.
Though, I can’t run for my day job. So I’m a clinical trial coordinator for the University of Louisville instead. What does that mean? I work with a wide array of clinical studies to find cures and better treatments for cancer. I LOVE what I do for a living. The cancer patients are some of the toughest and most inspirational people I have ever met in my life. They are the biggest reason behind my fundraising.
Then there’s fun. What do I do for fun?
#1 I run- (surprise!). I started running in 2008 and did my first marathon in the same year, and New York will be #12. Then there’s the Hot Yoga, Biking, Swimming (remember, that half triathlon?).
#2 I hang out with amazing people like the love of my life, Tony, and our amazing critters- I am the proud dog Mom of Jude, a wire Fox Terror just kidding, terrier, and Bailey, a Border Collie mix.
#3 Et cetera: I go to dinner at amazing eateries, travel, read books (and nerdy medical research articles), hike, canoe, and I really love ice cream.
