My name is Gina Bartolacci, and I am an avid marathon runner currently living in the Philadelphia area. Over the next year and a half, it is my goal to make the 2016 Olympic Trials in the marathon. As I continue my journey, I would be honored to be a Nuun ambassador. Here is a little background on my running over the past year: The past several months have been devoted to increasing my speed through a tailored workout regimen and racing shorter distances, such as 5ks, 10ks, and half marathons since The Boston Marathon last April. I plan to switch to the marathon distance early next year and give myself several tries, if needed, at the 2:43 qualifying time for the Trials. My goal race this fall is the Philadelphia Half Marathon taking place this Sunday, November 23rd, and I am going for a Top 5 female finish. I am elite status for this race.
