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.

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’ve come to understand the importance of not pushing myself too hard after a race, but I haven’t spent much time learning how to prepare for one. Because there’s just 4 more days until my first 10k, now’s a better time than any to build a plan that will make sure my body + mind…

If you would have told me 1 year ago today that I’d be running because I love it, I would have thought you were nuts. And running in a race? I’d think you were on drugs! I had such a great time today. I was so nervous the days leading up to my first race….
