Run Abby Run!
FastMed employee Abigail (Abby) Johnson, placed first in her age group at the North Hills 5K held this month. Currently, Abby is an x-ray technician in our Wake Forest, NC location. Abby, who is also a professional vocalist, began running to build up her breathing endurance while singing. While living in Nashville, TN, Abby was a R&B/Soul singer, songwriter and musician. Throughout her musically journey, she has had the opportunity to work with many professionals in the music industry.
Ready for a change, Abby decided she wanted to go to school to become an x-ray technician. After school, she moved back to Raleigh, NC to be closer to family and friends. While working in the sometimes hectic world of urgent care, Abby found peace in running. She started with 5 and 10Ks and worked her way up to half marathons. Abby has even worked out a barter system in which she sings the national anthem at most of her races in exchange for her entry fee.
Abby’s future goals are to go back to school and become a physician assistant. No matter how hectic her life becomes, Abby has vowed to never give up running.
