Today I’m going a few easy miles with an athlete that doesn’t understand the concept of “easing in” to anything.
Rose Scovel went from a non-runner to a running junkie in practically a blink of the eye.
Rose isn’t just a runner, either. She is also a triathlete, and she has her sights set on adding the title of Ironman to her resume soon.
A Change in Lifestyle
Rose never considered herself a runner. A combination of many factors deterred her from the sport.
That changed one early Friday morning when she was notified that she had type 2 diabetes.
Rose needed to find an activity that would help her live with her diagnosis.
Rose went from walking on her “storage treadmill” to signing up for her first half marathon within a year!

Competitive? Rose? No!
Through running, Rose discovered that she loves competition!
Rose found an outlet for her competitiveness in the sport.
Since running her first race, Rose has run numerous marathons, triathlons, and over 60 half marathons!
Rose has joined the Half Fanatics, meaning she has completed many races in a short period of time!
Race Against Time
An Ironman has been in Rose’s sights for a long time now. Originally, her goal was to compete in an Ironman before she turned 40.
As she began to seriously consider training for an Ironman, Rose realized she wouldn’t be able to do the event in the original time frame.
Plan B is now to do her Ironman for the 10th anniversary of her Diabetes diagnosis.
Rose is going full speed ahead, and there is nothing that will stand in her way.
