#65 - What can we say about Vanessa, this entrepreneurial bad-ass and Bay Area legend is here to tell it how it is. Her incredible introduction into running is quite literally the stuff that movies are made out of: an overweight, overworked 13-year-old Vanessa decided to change her life and ended up losing over 60 pounds.
And then just two years later, competing in and then winning a marathon. This was before most races even had a female entrance. The story highlights, the hard work and dedication that Vanessa just exudes, even though an Achilles injury derailed her running career, it didn't stop her from helping people as one of the most sought after personal trainers on the planet.
Vanessa has a long client list. And so many success stories that she's actually in the middle of publishing a book. After taking years away from the sport, she's back to dominating these long-distance runs. And she has so many tips for athletes nuggets, for those people looking to lose weight and tidbits for those looking for some extra motivation.
Heck, this driven entrepreneur even purchased a boxing gym during the middle of the pandemic. But she's the proudest of the charitable organization that she's founded that helps every single foster kid in Santa Clara.
