About Gia

I am a mom of twins, a marathon runner, a coach and a fit life connoisseur. I believe in the possibility of life balance and work together with runners, racers, Moms, Dads and families to achieve that same life balance.

My biggest sense of accomplishment is when people realize they are not alone, that they can share in their journey, that they can achieve goals, be empowered and enjoy balance in their lives.

I am a runner. OBSESSED. Its my happy place, its how I clear my head, get motivation and feel strong. I have run multiple marathons and am perpetually training for the next one. You can read about my upcoming races here.

My family is my world. I’m married to my best friend and I thank my lucky stars every day. VC and I have 3 year old twins. The G’s are the best thing that I have ever done. Seriously … we have amazing kids! Together VC and I have a huge network of family in our lives.

I have a few mottos in life:

1. GO

Put one foot in front of the other and GET GOING. I apply this to distance running and I think its why I love to run so much. If you just continually put one foot in front of the other and fight the nagging urge to stop, you will always be surprised at how much gets accomplished.

2. ENJOY

Do what you love, don’t feel guilty for it … don’t apologize for it. Just enjoy it. You will always be good at what you love.

3. BE PRESENT

Savor moments. Whether its GOING or ENJOYING its so important to BE in the moment. Look around, smile and notice how awesome life is.

THATS ME!

Welcome into my life … and the place where write about my journey.  Sharing the whole truth – the missteps and the good decisions. Because the life of this MamaLete is a journey not a destination.
