After an 8 year hiatus from running, in 2016 Renée had a great opportunity to begin training under a well accomplished ultra marathon runner, Trischul Cherns. He has motivated her to set new running goals, and focus on the one mile, two mile and 5K road/track races. At the age of 34, she wants to see what she can accomplish in her runs. She is excited to see what this journey brings. She has already seen improvement in her 2 mile and 5k times, hitting personal bests!
