Runner loses 65 lbs completing 1st half

Camilla Zanaria

She came a long way to make a point.

Camilla Zanaria is from Milan, Italy and ran the Rock ‘n’ Roll DC Half Marathon, her first 13.1 miles, to celebrate the progress that she’s made in losing weight.

Zanaria is taking part in a one-year program with the Colorado Wellness Center and has lost 65 pounds since she started her commitment to a healthy lifestyle.

“I feel really, really good,” she said while holding her finisher medal. “But it wasn’t easy. No way. It was a challenge to do this.”
