Exclusive AMPT Brand Ambassador™

Current Hometown: Aubrey, TX

Years Engaged in Running: 22 years

Favorite Running/Walking Distance: 5K

First Race: Run Like a Mother

Most Memorable Race: Disney Princess 1/2 Marathon, 5K, and 10K races. This race marked the 1 year anniversary of my Melanoma Cancer surgery (on the exact day one year later!) This race was my motivation to fight and heal and really push through my surgery recovery on my leg and calf. It was an amazing feeling to be RUNNING across that finish line knowing I beat cancer!

About Me: “I’m a boy mom and proud Firefighter Wife! Running is a privilege and I don’t take one step for granted. I’ve run numerous 5K and 10K races, and so far completed five 1/2 Marathons. My goal for 2022 is to complete my first FULL Marathon in under 4:20.”

Brand Ambassador

Current Hometown: Irving, TX

Years Engaged in Running: 8 years

Favorite Running/Walking Distance: Half Marathon

First Race: 2014 Dallas Mavericks 5k

Most Memorable Race: 2020 Cowtown Half Marathon for my 100th; 2021 Dallas Marathon for my 2nd fastest full

About Me: “I started running consistently in 2014 as I was training for my first 5K. Since then, I have done what I need to do to live an active lifestyle, and have been lucky to have accomplished over 100 half marathons, and a handful of marathons and ultras in the short amount of time. I’m still making a comeback from last year’s surgery, so my goal for 2022 is to PR in any distance! Gotta celebrate any victory possible! I’m grateful to be returning as an AMPT Ambassador for the 4th year. See y’all on the pavement!”

About Me: “It’s an honor to represent AMPT 4 years in a row. My goal for 2022 is to take better care of myself and stay active while encouraging others. I love our family of AMPT Ambassadors— how we cheer each other on, and what AMPT stands for. I hope to inspire others that they can run after injuries as well. I’m not fast, but God helps me run to encourage others. I’m a blessed wife of 30 years, mother of 3 grown boys— ages 26, 25, and 20, and grandmother of 2 boys, ages 6 and 2. I love meeting new runners and watching them grow on their journey.”

Great race production company! I’ve run lots of races in lots of places, AMPT is one of the best. They have lots of good planning and keep up with relevant communication as the race nears. It’s evident the owners and management of AMPT have the interest of the participants in mind. I look forward to their next production!

– Brook Rollins, Dallas, TX

Very well run race! This was my first AMPT race & it won’t be my last. I took off in the 2nd half marathon wave & felt very safe! Volunteers were amazing, water stops were very well done, & the course was well marked! Thank you for my first in person race since COVID-19 rocked our world!!! Appreciate all the hard work your staff & volunteers did to make it an amazing race morning!

– Jennifer Goodman, Dallas, TX

This was not your average run, it was SO organized and to the tee. It was the best run we’ve ever sampled at. With the way they wanted us to set up, we were able to get rid of each tetra without stress.

– Emy Breitenwischer
Field Marketing Coordinator, Vita Coco

Thank you for supporting our members! We had an awesome mix of runners including; Two Veterans (Army & Navy), three first time 5K/ 10K runners, one member training for his 1st Half Marathon. To top off the day, a few took home trophies! We greatly appreciated the rescheduling of the event, understanding firsthand the planning and logistics of putting on these runs. AMPT Running did a great job!
