GFNY Ambassador Story – Valerie Williams

Meet the GFNY Ambassadors – GFNY Florida Sebring Marathon

We’re getting ready for  GFNY Florida Sebring Marathon on October 24, 2021!

While we are preparing for this race – which is the first marathon in our GFNY Endurance Sports Series – many of our ambassadors are in full preparation mode with us, so that they are in their best shape and are ready to Be A Pro for A Day by the time race day rolls around.

One of our GFNY Florida Sebring Marathon ambassadors is Valerie Williams. Read her journey to GFNY marathon below:

I decided to run GFNY Marathon Florida Sebring and become an ambassador, for several reasons. My husband got me hooked on the GFNY brand several years ago and I know that every event they host – it’s top notch.
When I found out that they were expanding their market to include running, I was convinced this was a marathon I’d be willing to lace up my shoes and commit to training for. On top of that, it’s a Boston Qualifier, flat and fast course! It’s been over 10 years since I’ve qualified for Boston and over 5 since I’ve run a marathon… so this will – no doubt – be an uphill battle. But, I’d love to end my marathon running career with a bang and get this one last BQ run in. I’m absolutely positive that the GFNY course + support will make this event one to PR/BQ on and definitely a race to remember!
