Cyndi hated running growing up. Like, really hated it. But after graduating from college, looking to stay active and in shape, she ran her first mile on a treadmill at the Boston Sports Club in Fenway. That mile made her want to run another one. And another one. Until 6 years later, she ran her first marathon in Chicago. She's since fallen in love with the sport and has gained the expertise and passion for running that helps her motivate and successfully coach others.
