#TeamROADiD Dorothy Beal

Dorothy Beal has a whopping 42 marathons under her belt. She takes her love of running around the globe, conquering marathons in Tokyo, Berlin, and six times in Boston. Dorothy is the leader of I Run This Body — a running community that believes that you don’t have to be great at running to to be passionate about it. Dorothy says the only requirement to becoming a runner is to run— all bodies that run are runner’s bodies.

What do you consider to be your greatest accomplishment? 

That I'm still running! I ran my first marathon in 2003 and if you had told me growing up that one day I'd become a runner I wouldn't have believed you, so to still be a runner 15 years after my first marathon is without a doubt one of the accomplishments I'm most proud of.

Who inspires you?

My three kids!
