Neta started running at 12 years old on her middle school cross country and track teams. She continued on to run competitively in high school and college at Georgia Tech where she specialized in the 5000m and 10000m distances. After college, she took a break from running to pursue ballet, but returned to running following the birth of her first child. Upon her return to the sport, Neta ran with the Huntsville Alabama Fleet Feet racing team, running her first half and full marathons. Two additional kids later, and a brief stint in figure skating, she is looking to continue to get faster and chase down another sub 3:00 marathon.
