Bio: My name is Amanda Lacy and I have been running for 11 years. I have run 5K’s, 10K’s, half marathons, and marathons. I recently paced Park2Park Half Marathon in September and had a wonderful time.
Running has taken me on a journey I never expected and has become a big part of my life. I’m amazed at what my mind and body can do when I need to dig deep to finish a run or a race. I love the atmosphere at a race. Everyone has a personal goal, but is also cheering for the stranger next to them.
I have paced several half marathons and each one has been a wonderful and inspiring experience. One of my favorite things about pacing is listening to different running stories, both the struggles and accomplishments. I would be honored to be selected to return as pacer for Gazelle Girl Half Marathon in April.
Why Gazelle Girl: Gazelle Girl is important to me because it celebrates women and encourages a healthy lifestyle. I enjoy the fun atmosphere and love the support and encouragement the community shows on race day!
