Taiza is a native New Yorker, now living in Monroe, NC.
Taiza says, "I was an avid runner for most of my life, following in my fathers footsteps. So, I was determined to find my stride again after struggling with alcohol throughout my 20s. After seeking treatment, and the support of a fellowship and my higher power, I was able to find myself again. My goal is to share my experience, strength and hope by joining forces with Runwell and shedding a ray of hope to the still suffering addict and to all those affected by addiction. With each stride I hope to build upon my life in recovery and help give back what was so freely given to me."
