A native, Valerie’s been keeping fit on the streets of San Francisco since childhood; while her dad ran, she followed on a bike. She picked up running while in college and after a marathon in Hawaii, she was hooked. She’s since completed multiple triathlons, an Ironman and recently qualified for the venerable Boston Marathon. Not only does Valerie want her bootcampers to believe they can complete a major milestone like a triathlon, she takes this philosophy home; her 5 year-old just completed his first kid-sized triathlon. Oh and in case you were wondering, she kept running throughout both of her pregnancies, up through the 8th month (of course!).
