Vanessa has competed in a number of half and full marathons; she has also competed in numerous 5K, 10K, and 15K races. Her favorite distance to train for is the half marathon, "I can get fast and I know it." Vanessa trains everyday and never trains alone. She has a great training partner who sticks by her side for every run no matter the weather or distance, her 5 year old German Shepherd named Maggie. "I am very passionate about Dr. J's practice and helping individuals live a healthy lifestyle. She has provided me with such great care for not only my daily life but for all of my training needs."
