TATAMY, Pa. — It’s just another day on the trail for Brittany Thayer. She’s a Special Olympics Athlete who says she’s committed to staying fit.

“I got mostly bronze and gold medals,” said Thayer.

With her walking sneakers double knotted, she says she could walk all day so WFMZ’s Holly Harrar joined her. Brittany is a long-distance walker and runner. With help from her coach, Pam, they set a goal as part of the program’s Strides Challenge which pairs athletes with a partner, proving teamwork gets you to the finish line. Brittany and Pam have already obliterated their goal of 200 collective miles walked. Brittany still walks anyway.
