After surviving an abusive relationship, finding herself morbidly obese, and disconnected from loved ones. Leah began a journey of discovering passions in her life by creating her bucket list. This was a list of goals she never thought possible to achieve.
In 2010, Leah created a community support fitness Team and called it ‘You Go Girl’; the words her mother instilled in her growing up. Together the team supported members towards leading a physically active lifestyle. During this same time, Leah began her own journey of overcoming morbid obesity and reversed premature chronic conditions through diet and exercise.
With this new zest of life, she also learned to ride a motorcycle and even ran her first 5k. Leah’s newfound passions were put to a halt after a motorcycle accident nearly left her paralyzed. As Leah continued to recover from her injuries she remembered the feeling she had when she ran her first 5k. It was something she never thought she could do being 90 pounds heavier.
Leah continued to recover from her injuries. She slowly started walking, jogging, and running again! Running races taught Leah determination and perseverance. After her first half marathon, Leah was motivated to overcome her fears and ride a motorcycle again.
Since then, Leah has completed numerous marathons and has ridden her motorcycle in 39 states.
Leah’s goal is to travel all of the states on her motorcycle and share her mission of ‘You Go Girl’.
