About Me

I'm spontaneous, adventurous, and sophisticated. I like to take the road less traveled by with open arms. To enjoy my unplanned journey in this time, to laugh, to cry, to be free is what I live for. I am dedicated to my goals and can be the queen of adventure.

I have been running since I was six years old and formerly ran for a university in TEXAS. Currently, I am working on a book I wrote (www.elvira-gonzalez.com) and I have my own business in NYC where I direct and coach youth athletes in the sport of Track & Field (www.nycjuniorsprinters.com). I also just started working at the university of Pennsylvania. I love meeting new people and am amused by the diversity of this universe.

I am Elvira, born and raised a Texan :)


I have many philosophies. Just ask me on what subject and i will love to answer :)
