Berkley started running 10 years ago when her father (Mark Janik) took her out around their neighborhood. It was a humid Florida morning, and the two probably ran less than 1/4 a mile, but Berkley relished the opportunity to spend time with her dad - she was hooked!
Since that day, Berkley has continued to run for fun!
