Your Pacer Team

We’re excited to introduce you to the 2018 SHE Power Chandler Half Marathon Pacer Team:

Bethany Early (1:45)

I started running when I was 10-11 years old.  My neighbor was a sub-3 hour marathon runner and while I had no idea what that meant at the time, she asked me to run with her and I did.  I haven’t stopped since.  I have been on the cross country and track teams for both my junior high and high school years, and ran recreationally throughout college.  It wasn’t until my late 20’s did I sign up for my first race, a half marathon.  I was hooked.  I love the competition both against other runners and against myself to continually improve.  I’ve since run 3 full marathons, many 5k’s and 10K’s, and too many half marathons to count.  I look forward to a new opportunity to be a pacer for the SHE power half marathon and hopefully help someone meet a PR or just finish with a sense of community.

Carol Roarty (1:55)

I have been running for about 6 years.  I started running with my daughter when she joined Girls On The Run and had a 5k.  I have run several half marathons, the Phoenix Marathon twice and Boston.  I love running to spend time with friends and ME time.  I will be running the Chicago Marathon in October and Boston again in April.

Angelica Bermudez (2:00)

I’m a momma of two and my running journey started after my second child in 2013. Since then, I have completed 6 marathons and numerous half marathons, 10Ks, and 5ks. I love running and being involved in my community encouraging women to find their love for fitness.

Ashley Gamba (2:10)

Ashley has been running since she was in middle school, but started competing in races in 2010 at the LA 5k. Since then, she has completed 12 marathons, 25 half marathons, one 50k and many 5ks and 10ks. Her favorite distance is the marathon and she is currently trying to qualify for the Boston Marathon. Ashley’s half marathon PR is a 1:37.

Cynthia Myrelcynth Rodriguez-Jimenez (2:20)

Cynthia Jimenez is a mother of 4 energetic children and manages to work a full time job.  She has a degree in Bachelor of Science in Justice Studies from Arizona State University.  She works for a nonprofit agency Southwest Human Development. She loves working out in the community and making a difference to the families she serves.  

Running has always been a passion of her.  She ran her first 5k with her father at the age of 6.  Her father Antonio was later approached by Dr. Diaz a running coach.  Dr. Diaz invited Cynthia to be part of a running club Seguro Social of San Luis Rio Colorado, Sonora.  This is where it all began.  She began to fall in love with it.  As she grew up she was attending races in Baja California, Sonora and Arizona area.  It was not until High School that she realized she could go somewhere with it.  She was offered different scholarships through academics, cross country and track to different colleges.  Being a home body she decided to stay close to home and attend Glendale Community College for 2 year who she ran for and then transfer to ASU.  She hung her shoes to focus on family. It was not until having her last child that she had the urge to get back in to her running shoes.  She has now been physically active in the running and triathlete community. She has recently become an Ironman and looks forward to what the future has instore for her.

Chrissie O’Brien (2:30)

I’ve been running my whole life. My first race was in kindergarten. I did track and cross country and ran short distance all the way thru college. I signed up for my first marathon in 2005 on accident and never looked back! I added ultras to my marathons about 5 years ago and between marathons and ultras have done more than 100. I have been pacing friends in marathons for years and finally about 3 years ago stumbled into my first official pacing gig. I love pacing people thru their 1st race because I never stop talking and can help to make them forget some of the pain and struggle. The gratitude (and sometimes tears) at the end make me feel better than anything could!

Olivia Bautista Sparks (2:40)

Hello! I’m Olivia: a librarian on hiatus, mommy to 2 kiddos, and an adult onset athlete. I started running after I followed my college roommates out to the track and gradually increased my distance. My first half marathon was the Inaugural (PF Chang’s) Rock and Roll Arizona in 2004. I’ve since completed 11 half marathons, 5 15ks, as well as a number of 10ks and 5ks. I started doing shorter distance triathlons a few years ago and I’m proud to say that I crossed the finish line of 2017 Ironman 70.3 Arizona. Running is my time to clear my head and to connect with others who have the same goals. I love to celebrate *all* the training hours on race day, so I’m glad you’ll be with me during the big celebration of She Power!
