Nancy Goodnight is the mother of four teenage daughters. Clearly, she started training for marathons to get away from her children.

They must be really bad because now she’s taken up triathlons.

Seriously, Nancy is dedicated to spreading her love of running and fitness throughout the community. Her Miracle Match KIDS Marathon Program is growing by leaps and bounds and has been instrumental in bringing awareness to the issue of childhood obesity throughout Central Texas.

She is passionate about the Be the Match Registry and has seen firsthand how this treatment can save lives.

Her running resume includes:
119 Marathons (6 Boston, 4/5 World Majors)
12 Ultras
