As a former special education teacher, learning consultant, & school administrator, Keri has stepped out of a traditional school and immersed herself into the school of fitness. Now ultra marathoner, Ironman, CrossFit coach, yoga instructor and yoga studio owner (www.empoweryoganj.com); Keri has spent her career caring for and teaching others, showing people that anything is possible.
Keri wakes each day with the mantra, "it’s a great day to be alive" and works hard to live up to that mantra by doing things that challenge her and enjoying every aspect of life. She tries to not take anything for granted and appreciates the small gifts in life. Keri has a positive attitude, will, and desire to live a good, strong, healthy, and kind life. She believes that it is important to be grateful for the things we have, tell the people in our lives that we care about them, and do something each day that will challenge us (maybe even scare us a little).
Keri is one of 166 people (60 women) in the world to complete the World Marathon Challenge (7 marathons on 7 continents in 7 days)! She entered this race as a way to challenge herself both physically and mentally, but also to raise money and awareness for the American Cancer Society. Keri recently lost her dad, Arthur Roedel & stepmom, Debbie Roedel, long time residents and business owners of South Brunswick, to cancer. Keri ran to honor them and help those fighting for their lives.
Join us on June 8th to hear her story- how she got into fitness, her career, how she completed this epic event and how to start carving your path to live your best life!
