Meri has dedicated herself to living a healthy lifestyle, for herself and her son. As a certified RRCA run instructor, an experienced marathon runner, coach for Train 4 Autism and race pacer Meri hopes to mentor, encourage and empower people to see and feel the strength they didn’t know they had. As the parent of a special needs child, Meri has chosen to take the strengths she has been given to inspire others to be the best they can be. Life requires strength inside and out. Over the last 6 years, Meri has participated in over 20 marathons and 70 half marathons (including a 4 time Boston qualifier).
