Martha Hall is an accomplished multi-sport athlete, competitive cyclist, professional multi-sport coach, student and full-time, full-on single mom. Among her accomplishments, she is a 2019 Race Across the West Finisher; a 2015 RAAM Finisher on a four-person coed team; the Women’s Master Champion of the 2014 Key West Swim; the 2013 GA State Criterium Pro/1/2/3 Champion; the 2012 Aquabike National Champion; and a 2012 August Half Iron World Qualifier.
Yet Martha would quickly say her greatest accomplishment and fulfillment comes as a single mom to her boys, ages 17 and 15. Martha has faced significant health challenges. Ten years ago, she was diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, a connective tissue disorder. She is at risk of vascular events and heart valve deterioration. Martha and her cardiologist monitor and evaluate the risk versus reward of her training. At some point, her training and racing will likely end.
In 2014, Martha had brain surgery to remove a pituitary micro adenoma. She spent three days in ICU and a month with limited activity. She balanced healing with training and completed RAAM with a four-person team just eight months post surgery. Her health concerns have caused great stress emotionally, financially and personally. Not knowing her long-term prognosis and being a single mom motivated Martha to improve her overall fitness and quality of life. Her boys are her source of motivation and biggest supporters.
Martha is completing her M.S. in Criminal Justice Administration from the University of Wisconsin, and she works full time in Fayette County State Court as an Accountability Court Coordinator.
