Route 20 Challenge Featured Runner-Stephanie Barton

 

Route  20 Featured Runner

Stephanie Barton is a second year runner who has joined the ranks as a Route 20 Challenge road racer.  She started her road race career in February of 2013 and ran in at least twelve Route 20 Road Challenge events and more than 25 total races, earning her a 2013 Route 20 Road Challenge running jacket!  Stephanie’s decision to start running stemmed from her intrinsic need to lose weight and get in shape.  The transition from sedentary life to her current status was a slow, methodical process with the end result being a woman on a mission!!  She transitioned off the couch (with her doctor’s guidance), next using the Treadclimber by Boflex, walking outside on a regular basis, and shifting to light jogging. This transcended into running most days of the week and finishing her events strong!!  During this journey, Stephanie was able to encourage her husband Joe to start looking into fitness as well.  He started training with her on the road and in the gym on April 1st of last year.  Through her hard work, Joe became an active training partner and in the process lost 114 pounds himself, a double win!!!

Her first race was in Richfield Springs and with hard effort and fortitude, Stephanie was eventually able to run a whole race without stopping, this taking place in Cooperstown with The Girls on the Run Race.  With the help of a good friend of hers, Brandon Clark, Stephanie was able to secure a treadmill.  For a while, she had lifted weights at Big K’s Body Shop which allowed Stephanie to be able to gain strength and increase overall fitness.  Adding to her goal of continued race running, Stephanie will be biking events and entering weightlifting competitions in 2014.  The road is open to what you make of it and Stephanie is certainly on her way!!

So as you go through the racing season look for Stephanie and give her a High Five!  Let’s cheer her on as we tackle the roads this year, wherever they may take her.  Way to go Stephanie!!!
