Andrea's story is not just about sports; it's about overcoming personal hardships, redefining life goals, and pushing the boundaries of what's physically and mentally possible to get healthier and stronger in every way.

About Andrea Moore:

Andrea shares a glimpse into her personal life, including the challenges and triumphs of being a mother to three children and the support she receives from her dedicated crew and pacers during races.
