I wanted to introduce myself and give you a brief background on me and my journey and why I decided to start this site.
I started running in late 2012/early 2013 to train for my first half marathon, why I decided to just jump into 13.1 and not start smaller is something I’ll never understand. I guess when I saw that the Pittsburgh Half that year was on my 21st birthday I just knew I had to sign up. I was not a fan of running at that time and to be quite honest my training was terrible. I struggled the entire time on race day and could hardly walk afterwards, but I finished and that’s all that mattered to me at that time. I got the “post race blues” after that and didn’t get back into running until June of 2015. Since then I have done three more half marathons, two 10 milers, a few 10k’s and 5k’s, and last October I ran in the Chicago marathon which I am now training for again. This March I became RRCA certified to train others for whatever distance they’re looking to tackle in hopes that my passion rubs off on them.
I honestly never thought I’d be as involved and in love with running as I am now. Running has helped me work through my problems, manage my anxiety, become more confident, and has really given me a sense of purpose in life. I hope you enjoy following along as I share my passion, stories, and my journey to another marathon and beyond!
Till next time..
