You’ve run the Boston Marathon® several times, including with iFIT in 2021. Is there a special moment that stands out from that year?
Heather: “I loved running a portion of the race with Chris Nikic. He is an amazing athlete that has Down Syndrome, and he is proving that anything is possible. And running it with is my favorite memory. There’s nothing that will compare to that for me.”
Is there anything you want to say to the iFIT Community before running this year’s Boston Marathon®?
Heather: “I am so excited, and I hope you’ll come along with all of us trainers that are running it. I hope to see you either in person or on your machine with me!”
