CMC Athlete of the Month: February 2017
Our male athlete of the month is Tony Matos. A year ago, Tony was struggling with diet and exercise. Although he had been an athlete and always enjoyed being physically fit, the responsibility of running his own business and everyday life had taken priority over his own health. However, in the past year, Tony has began to reinvent himself and running was a huge part of that transformation. He lost 60 lbs and has dedicated himself to making healthy diet and exercise a priority. Tony ran several Millennium Running races last year and worked hard to improve his times by training with the Millennium Running Club. He is currently training to run the Shamrock Half Marathon in March. Congratulations to Tony, who is the CMC Male Athlete of the Month for February.
Our female athlete of the month is Evelyn Gaynor. In 2012, Evelyn started her journey to lose weight and get healthy. She lost over 100 pounds by walking and eating correctly. In 2014, she and her running partner, Kris, ran their first race and now they run many Millennium Races together. Evelyn is encouraging and supportive to fellow runners at every race she completes, even those who are complete strangers to her. At the end 2016 NH 10 Miler, Evelyn and her running partner turned around so that the runner behind them wouldn’t have to finish the race alone. We are proud to have runners like Evelyn run our races and we are proud to name her the CMC Female Athlete of the Month for February.
Every month, we recognize and celebrate the achievements of two members of the community. One male and one female athlete, as nominated by their peers, will be chosen to be honored as the Catholic Medical Center Athlete of the Month. We are not just looking at those who consistently finish at the front of the pack but also at those who demonstrate exemplary character and are a positive influence on their community. These qualities include, but are not limited to, dedication, commitment, leadership, and perseverance.
