Meet goodr Ambassadr Anel Hernandez, who has been an Ambassadr with us since we were making our sunglasses samples out of Play Doh, trying to get people understand our vision for a better future. Anel attributes starting running in 2010 to her sister, Marcela Garcia who is also a runner. This credit is pretty special, considering that Anel ran her very first half marathon that year in just 2:04, and has been going strong ever since! She has a half marathon PR of 1:40, a marathon PR of 3:19 and an ultra marathon PR of 4:46. So, yeah, she’s really fast.
She’s not f’ing around either, saying, “Been there, done that, got the finisher medal.” This running maniac has completed over 35 half marathons, 17 full marathons and 6 ultras. L.A. Marathon is her hands-down favorite – her favorite course (on which she has a 3:42 PR), and her favorite distance, 26.2.
An alumnus of Pepperdine and CSUDH, she has been in the education field since ’99 and teaching for 12 years.
Anel. Rhymes with badass. Well, it doesn’t actually, but you know what we mean.
