Alicia has been working with me since I first started coaching 3 years ago! She lives in a tiny Alaskan village off the road system, and she often runs circles around the gym and inside the school where she teaches for her workouts! There aren’t many places to run, but she makes it work. . . .now that’s a dedicated runner! Alicia’s made a lot of progress over the years, and I know she’ll be faster after having her daughter this past October! Everyone, meet Alicia!
Tell us a little about yourself: family, work, where you’ve lived, etc.
My name is Alicia Miner and I am a teacher in Quinhagak, Alaska. I am originally from Ohio and have lived in Alaska for 7 years. I have a 5 month old named Quinn, and my husband’s name is Peter. We met in Alaska and were married in 2013.
How did you get into running?
I tried running a few years ago and it was super challenging. I then started doing Insanity and lost 30 pounds. Once that happened I gave running a try again. I ran a few 5ks and then trained for my first half marathon. After my half marathon, I became addicted to running! I am slowly getting my fitness back after having a baby.
