    Stacy’s fitness journey started when her son, Marcus, was very young. Originally, it was something for her to do to reconnect with herself outside of being a mom. Sometimes, Stacy would exercise while Marcus would sleep and other times Marcus and his sisters would exercise alongside her. Her ultimate dream was to reach Ironman distance, and she knew that she wanted to set an example for Marcus and her three girls: that anything is possible.
