Team Track Shack

Vanessa Castro is a RA warrior, wife, daughter, friend, rescue doxie mommy, Project/Agile Miracle Worker, barre boo, professional Hype Girl/Sherpa, and Galloway Group Leader!, Growing up in New York City, I was always a huge fan of the NYC Marathon. I have fond memories going to 70th street and 1st avenue and cheering on the runners. As an adult, I would always say “ I only run if I’m being chased”. Many things changed for me in my late 20s,with my Rheumatoid Arthritis diagnosis, and I realized I needed to blow off some stress – seeing how much my then boyfriend (now husband <3) was running, and how many medals he would get- I figured why not. It started as having something to do with him, and it’s evolved into something I do for myself. You can follow @vmcastro1785 on Instagram to keep up with all things running, barre, and life.
