Strong, passionate, and downright humble, Richmond-based Zoë Romano is the first person to ever run the entire Tour de France route. I met up with Zoë after interviewing her for our March issue (read the full story here) and was utterly blown away not only by her positive energy and incredible endurance, but also by her inspirational selflessness. During both of her long-distance runs (the Tour de France route in 2013 and a cross-country run in 2010), Zoë raised thousands of dollars for non-profits such as the Boys and Girls Club and the World Pediatric Project.
