Shadonne's Story - Shadonne's AKA "MzSkinnyFatGirl" started on my running journey in my early 30's while trying to lose the stubborn bodyfat. I was born with a mild heart condition that will not allow me to be the fastest runner that I desire. In fact, its very challenging to stabilize my heartrate. But "No EXCUSES"..is my motto!! I maybe considered a slower runner but I'm steady, compassionate, determined and resilient! So, I run to inspire other women to not allow physical challenges to stop you, but rather use them as a stepping stone in life...If I can become a runner..so can you!
