Teresa Inman – Treasurer

Serving as treasurer of the Twin City Track Club is the perfect blend of Teresa’s professional abilities and personal interests. Teresa was born in Albemarle, North Carolina. She has an undergrad in business administration and a master’s in accounting from UNC-Chapel Hill.

In her first few weeks at Carolina, she met Lucas Inman, now her husband of 20 years and an ENT at PEN- TA. They have three boys who keep their schedules full. Twin 15-year-olds attend Mt. Tabor where one runs cross country, one plays soccer, and both run indoor and outdoor track. Nine-year-old Noah is also on a competitive soccer team.

Just before the twins’ first birthday, Teresa ended her full-time job as a tax professional in a public accounting firm. The stress of having infant twins, a husband in residency, and trying to work full time was difficult. But that change brought the opportunity to do part-time work and to utilize her professional skills for volunteer purposes, for her kids’ schools as well as in her personal interests.

In addition to her job as treasurer of the TCTC, Teresa has served in many volunteer roles, such as the president of the Junior League of Winston-Salem, chair of the Board of Managers of the William G. White YMCA, treasurer of many PTAs (Whitaker, TJMS, and MTHS Athletic Board), treasurer of the Whitaker Circle of Commitment, Crazy Running coach, and board member of Camel City Track Foundation.

Aside from her family, her main passion is running. Teresa started running competitively late in life, thus, was on an upward curve, trending faster for a number of years. (Age, now 43, may have leveled this trend in the last year or so.). She was introduced to structured training by Julie Dover. Her general love of running and accounting/numerical details generated a love of training theories, pace strategies, and workouts. Teresa started running more races and chipping away at milestones one after the other.

The marathon is the distance that has monopolized her focus the most over the years. Teresa ran her first marathon, Charlotte’s Thunder Road in November of 2012. Since then she has run every Boston Marathon, and completed Boston to Big Sur in 6 days in 2015. Her current, and potentially lifetime, marathon PR is a laughably tragic 3:00.03. She might not achieve the sub 3 milestone, but loves every minute and detail of the training. So, she will continue to happily run and challenge herself however possible.
