Galina works at a global science and technology company, where she oversees the International Trade Controls and Compliance Program. She loves running because it keeps her grounded and focused. She also enjoys spending her free time hiking in local parks, reading fiction, or watching a good series on Netflix.
Galina’s fondest memory occurred during her first 2021 Skagit Flats Marathon, where she stopped feeling her legs and realized she was not meeting her goal time. There was a moment of disappointment and even fear, but instead of focusing on negatives she decided to trust her training, keep going and see what happens. She won the race in her gender. This was a time she truly experienced the connection between mental state and performance.
