My name is Amanda Lacy and this summer I celebrated 12 year runnerversary. I have run 5K’s, 10K’s, half marathons, and marathons. This summer I paced the Lake Michigan Half Marathon and had a wonderful time.

Running has taken me on a journey I never expected and has become a big part of my life. I’m amazed at what my mind and body can do when I need to dig deep to finish a run or a race. I love the atmosphere at a race. Everyone has a personal goal, but is also cheering for the stranger next to them. 

I have paced several half marathons and each one has been a wonderful and inspiring experience. One of my favorite things about pacing is listening to different running stories, both the struggles and accomplishments. I would be honored to be selected to return as pacer for Gazelle Girl Half Marathon in April.
