Jamie Watts is a runner in the Washington D.C. metro area. One thing that makes Jamie unique is that she has developed a passion for running while living with spastic diplegia cerebral palsy. This type of cerebral palsy primarily impacts Jamie's legs while creating challenges with balance, coordination, and muscle tone and strength. Jamie began running to get healthy and prepare for a trip to Italy in 2012. That same year she completed her first road race, the Gender Defender, which is part of the Marine Corps Marathon Event Series.
