1. My name is Eileen Meyen.
2. I am a full time student at University of Houston, finishing up my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology then hopefully on to getting my Masters in Clinical Psychology. I am working to fulfill my dream on becoming a licensing practicing counselor specializing in PTSD and Cognitive therapy.
3. I started my journey in October 2016, so almost a year and half.
4. There are many memoires that have been created while being at Veritas, it so hard just to pick one! The one that stands the most would be the Spartan Sprint! It was my very first obstacle course race, I thought I knew what team work was until I saw my gym family work together. It completely blew me out of the water. Each one of us was at a different level of athleticism, we all came together to help one another, encourage
one another and too dig deep to bring our inner beast! It was self-less; we all wanted each other to succeed. We finished as a team. It was quite an
accomplishment for me, considering that 9 months prior to the event I was literally bed ridden and immobile with Lupus related ailments.
5. Going to the gym at 5am. I also enjoy cooking and spending time outdoors, hunting and fishing with my husband.
6. My latest accomplishment is completing all 5 races in the Run Houston Race Series for 2017 and I’m currently looking forward to Run Houston Clear Lake, #3 in the series for 2018. I’ve been working on getting a better completion time, however it’s not my goal I am enjoying the journey on how far I’ve come and I can’t wait too see next!
7. My advice for newbies, is just do it and keep at it! The first step is the hardest once that done the rest will follow. Some days will be harder than others. On your toughest days there will always be genuine words of encouragement to get you through it. I really enjoy being apart of Veritas, it is more than a gym it truly is a gym family. The encouragement and positive vibes are selfless.
