    Mary Wineberg was born in Brooklyn, New York, but was relocated to Cincinnati at the age of 4 where she had to adjust to her new life. She attended Cincinnati Public Schools and started running track at Walnut Hills High School. Upon graduation from Walnut Hills in 1998, she attended the University of Cincinnati on a track and field scholarship and majored in Health Promotions. When her college career was over, she was not ready to hang up her track spikes and believed there was more for her to accomplish in the sport. It was a relentless grind over the course of several years, but Mary worked her way up to the highest level in her sport. She was twice ranked top 10 in the World, but her biggest accomplishment came when she won an Olympic Gold Medal as the lead off runner of the USA 4x400 meter relay team in the 2008 Beijing Olympics. Mary had a 10-year professional running career and was inducted into the University of Cincinnati Athletics Hall of Fame. Mary and her husband reside in Cincinnati, Ohio and are proud parents of two beautiful little girls.
