Madonna Barker

Welcome, Madonna! This is Madonna’s first season with the RUNColumbus Race Series, and she is excited about “seeing what the race series is all about.” Madonna adds, “I started running on May 6, 2013, when my church led a Run For God class. It prepped you to run a 5k in 12 weeks. I fell in love with running! I’ve completed 4 full marathons, am registered for my 10th half marathon, and completed many 5/10k’s. I was 43 when I started running, and I am very grateful for how I feel physically and mentally. I love the running community…it’s definitely a family!”
