Georgia State Representative - Mariska van Rooden
Mariska lives in Atlanta GA with her husband Matthew Lyngarkos. She started her running career in 2007 when her friend Caryn asked her to train for the Marine Corps Marathon. Since then, Mariska has participated in many more road races ranging from 5Ks to marathons. In 2010, she decided to add a little bit of swimming and biking to her training and has completed several triathlons including two Ironmans.
After having worked as a Human Resources professional for more than a decade, Mariska decided to switch careers and become a full time Endurance Coach with a focus on running and triathlons. She is currently a Board Member of the Metro Area Running Club in Atlanta and works as an Endurance Coach for Endurance Concepts, an Atlanta-based endurance coaching firm.
