Meet our November Mother Runner of the Month Donna Villavicencio, and she will change your life.
As the owner/trainer of a women’s owned gym, triathlon coach, and founder of the local running group, Sole Sisters, Donna’s passion is helping women achieve something they never thought possible.
Take this example from her nominator: She hadn’t run since high school. Within 3 months of meeting Donna, she ran a half marathon. Within 7 months, she ran a marathon. Then she went on to qualify for the Boston marathon.
“My story is similar to all who know Donna,” she shared. “Regardless of the capacity in which you meet Donna, you will begin running, even if you never thought of yourself as a runner. She encourages us all to reach our full potential and have many laughs while doing it. Meeting Donna and being a part of her tribe has changed my life in so many positive ways.”
Donna lives in New Jersey with her husband and two daughters ages 12 and 9. She is a certified personal trainer, group fitness instructor and triathlon coach. She’s been running off and on for 20 years and consistently over the last seven.
