We coached Dale for triathlon for years while she resided in Richmond, VA. After moving to northern VA, she decided to focus solely on running and has found great success. If there is one word to describe Dale Treadway, it would have to be “resilient”. During her fall marathon build, she experienced just about every hiccup possible. But day after day, Dale’s feet would hit the floor and she would go for it. The Outer Banks Marathon presented some challenges, but Dale turned right around the next week to run a very strong Richmond Marathon. Her coach, Ryan Middleton stated, “As a coach, all I could do was sit back and admire her fight each and every day.” Last weekend, Dale completed the Peaks of Otter Christmas Classic 5k and finished 2nd in her age group. She is a true example that persistence and hard work truly do pay off.
