Meet SPIbelt Ambassador Amanda R.

Hi My name is Amanda Rycraft, a.k.a “Abfly”, I am an orthodontic assistant by day, a wife to the best husband ever, and mom to a teddy bear Pomeranian named “Chewy”. My true passion is running. Running is my stress reliever, my therapy, and something I work on daily to stay in shape. My nickname “Abfly” originally came from my maiden name initials and because I am a huge Mariah Carey fan, whose fan club website is called “HoneyBFLy”. My goals for 2018: #1 is to get a new PR at Boston, #2 Run the Chicago Marathon, & #3 is get as close as I can to a three hour marathon at CIM in Sacramento by the end of the year. I also want to run 2,400 miles this year to continue to expand my miles per year target!
