In Your Community: Pioneers Go the Distance

By Debra Manley, Billing Operations Analysts, Finance Billing Operations, AT&T

In 2008, I began running as a way to stay fit and healthy.  I never dreamed it would turn into so much more. After my husband passed away suddenly in 2010, I turned to running to find some peace of mind. It became my solace and offered me clarity. I can’t believe all the running goals I’ve accomplished; 2 full marathons, 8 half marathons and countless shorter races. Running has shaped my life not only physically but more importantly, mentally. I have a love and a passion for running that I want to share with others.
