Donna-Dolores Buse

Assistant Coach

Welcome to USAFit San Antonio! My name is Donna-Dolores Buse, and I am definitely looking forward to seeing what this year brings.

I got involved with USAFit San Antonio last year. It was the first running group I have ever got involved in, and it turned out to be a lot of fun. I used to weigh 248 pounds, and now I have completed 5 full marathons and 6 half marathons. I am also a Marathon Maniacs member.  That’s how I know we are capable of doing anything we set our minds to. I look forward to running with you all, and see you at the finish line.
