Meet SPIbelt Ambassador Wendy
I’m Wendy and I’m thrilled to be part of the SPIbelt ambassador team! I’m an adult onset runner and have been running for over 25 years. I live outside of Chicago and off the road, work as a nurse practitioner. I’m a married mom with 2 grown boys. Two years ago, I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis, but my determination to keep running has kept me going. I’ve retired from the marathon distance, but last year I ran 5 half marathons. Besides running, I do CrossFit, yoga, and waterski. I share all my adventures on my blog called Taking the Long Way Home.
What is your biggest goal for 2019?
I want to do a strict pull-up!
What is your favorite SPIbelt product?
I actually love the original SPIbelt. I bought my first one at the Walt Disney World Half marathon in 2011 when I left my waist pack at home. I love the way it fits around my hips and doesn’t move. I’ve only replaced it twice and that’s with a lot of use!
Coolest place you’ve taken your SPIbelt?
Stand Up Paddleboarding on Lake Michigan in Door County, Wisconsin.
What quote or motto keeps you motivated?
“Because sitting on the sidelines is fun!”
Anything else you’d like to share?
Off the road, I am a married mom of 2 grown boys. I work as a pediatric nurse practitioner.
