HOME

We all have hopes and dreams but often times reality sets in and life, encompassed with our hectic schedules can cause us to fall off the wagon, lose focus, and become unmotivated to follow through with our goals. To further inspire, encourage, and motivate individuals to achieve their own fitness, personal, and career goals, T2 Fitness has established the Goal Seekers 5k race. The purpose of the Goal Seekers 5k race is to gathers hundreds of individuals together all with one purpose in mind: to not let another year go by without being successful at reaching our goals. Our Founder and Race Director, Tasha Turnbull, was once a previously obese teenager who turned to fitness and running as a way to lose 100 pounds and maintain that weight loss over the course of 15 years (and counting). It is imperative that T2 Fitness encourages people within the Hampton Roads community, and beyond, to utilize running to motivate and empower themselves to live their BEST lives possible.
