That Was Then

This photo was taken on July 15, 2010, while Alicia Azimipour, of Mount Juliet, TN, was on a trip to Washington, D.C. “My weight was at an all time high, topping the scale at 260 pounds. When I got home from that trip, I decided to change my life forever,” she says.

This is Runnovation.

This photo is Alicia on June 1, 2013, running the Sunburst 10K in South Bend, IN.  Alicia was first in her age group at that race. “My fiancé (boyfriend at the time) ran his first marathon that day,” she says. “After running the 10K, I met him at his mile 20 and ran him in the last 6.2 miles.”

Says Alicia: “Running sets me free. My mind as well as my body reaps the benefits! When I began my weight loss journey, I never thought I would be RUNNING in races—and even winning!”
