In October 2015 Whitney was at peak training for the upcoming marathon when she became injured. After a few months of being unable to run, Whitney found SPEAR and met a team of people devoted to her care.
“I had the good fortune of working with Joe, Brooke, Michael, Justin and Lindsay. They have helped me stick to a plan, have faith in the healing process, and believe that I will be strong enough to race again.”
Despite the physical and mental hurdles that come along with being physically injured, Whitney found that her team at SPEAR helped her reach her goals, including reaching the Timberman Half Ironman finish line with a personal record time of 5:33.
“I am thrilled to be able to walk to the start line of the NYC marathon for the first time and race with intention. I know now that injury is just a reminder of that which needs to be strengthened. The SPEAR team has my back and that is a great feeling.”
