Amanda Boccio

Head Coach - Marathon Group

My love of long distance running began in grade school, and my career blossomed while I was a member of the varsity cross country, indoor and outdoor track teams at Ithaca College. After my intercollegiate competition days were over, I signed up for my first half marathon just to prove to myself that I could cover the distance. Much to my surprise, I loved the physical and mental challenge and I decided to tackle the full marathon. The exhilaration and rush of emotions I felt as I crossed the finish line with a great big smile on my face was life changing, and I officially caught the marathon bug. I went on to qualify for and finish the Boston Marathon in 2013. After a brief racing hiatus, I found the USA Fit Albany community; I had such a positive experience, that I am returning for my 5th year.

I look forward to sharing my passion for this truly lifelong sport. I would love nothing more than to provide enthusiastic support for a happy, healthy journey toward your running related goals! Here’s to a great season!
