Maria Figueroa

In 1999 Maria decided to join her high school cross country team. Her coach brought the team to Memorial Park on many occasions, and Maria fell in love with running. A couple years later she met her husband and introduced him to the sport. He also became hooked! As soon as their son was born Maria bought a running stroller and they added another person to their running family. Today her son has outgrown the stroller, but all 3 of them can be found at the Park running together and thankful to have something that unites them all.
