A couple of years ago, I was feeling unfulfilled at work, unhappy with my body, frustrated with the lack of excitement in my life, and disappointed with my nutrition choices.

My passion for running lead me to take better care of my body, participate in new activities, eat cleaner to support my training, listen to my body, and chase my dreams no matter how insurmountable they seemed at the time. As the months passed, the next chapter in my life was unfolding before me in exactly the way I’d dreamed it would all because I picked up a pair of old running shoes and decided to just go for it!

I completed my first half marathon just a little over 2 weeks ago, w00t! Setting up the training plan for the big day was definitely one piece, but so was preparing the week leading up to the event. I was nervous, forgetful, and excited. I’d been preparing for this for over a year and didn’t…

1 year of preparation, 1 torn patella, 56+ hours of physical therapy, 190 mile drive, multiple bowls of rice pasta, sprinkled with a couple moments of fear… and I’m officially a half marathon finisher.
