Running History

Running began for me as a way to lose weight, plain and simple. After cleaning up my diet, I knew I needed to move more to burn calories—so I started running.

More than 4 years later and 50 pounds lighter, I am still running. These days I run for fun and to compete against myself. Somewhere along the line running went from being a calorie-burner to a sanity-saver, cheap therapy, and second love.

My first brush with running came from using the Couch to 5K training program. After successfully completing the program, I ran my University’s homecoming 5K in October 2008. And I just kept going from there…

I’ve experienced my fair share of injuries over the course of my time running—from a stress fracture to hip tendinitis that stretched on for over a year and a calf strain.

In November 2011 I completed my first marathon.

In January 2012 I transitioned to mid-foot running.

I’m currently training for my second marathon.
