An Interview with Donna Shagena - The Journey to a First Marathon - Episode 68

October 15, 2018

What you'll hear on this episode. 

My friend Donna Shagena joined me on this journey when it began. So today I'm happy to share her journey. Her journey to a first marathon. 

On this episode we'll trace the beginning of her running journey from a young girl thinking she weighed too much and wanted to run to lose weight - to the woman she is today, chasing down a goal that was inspired by so many others. 

Donna talks about her falling in love with running after running the Victory Junction Run to Victory 5k, where she got to shake Kyle Petty's hand at the finish line. She talks about the impact the Megsmiles Supporters Facebook family has had on her life. She talks about how running has changed who she is. And oh - there may be some talk about a cartwheel at the finish line of her upcoming first marathon - the finish line of the Richmond Marathon on November 10, 2018.  


Introduction and closing song: One Flame to Burn (Prospect 7)
