Andrea Park (Part 1 of 3)

Andrea grew up in Houston and eventually moved to Austin where she obtained a job that required her to sit at a desk for 8-hours each day. She felt like she needed to start exercising in order to counteract her inactivity at work. She came across a GROUPON advertisement for Austin's Rogue Running Club and decided to sign up and give it a try. She says she became hooked and, to her surprise, was even able to finish a half marathon only a few months later. She also enjoyed being part of the club and making new friends. In 2012 when Andrea's husband landed a new job in Houston, she was devastated because it meant she would have to leave the Austin running community. In order to cope with her feelings about the move, she decided to join the Runner's High Club and channel her frustration into something positive. She says she has never looked back.
