Running

My Running Story
It was 2010. I was one year out of college and sitting in a doctor's office flipping through a magazine when I came across an article called "Yes! You CAN Run a Half-Marathon!" The training plan (found here) seemed super reasonable, so I joined my office gym and started training. I ran my first half-marathon, started this blog, found an incredible running community on the internet, and signed up for my first full marathon as soon as I got home from my first half.

I became addicted to running. I signed up for every race that I could and loved the thrill of crushing PRs, and crossing one finish line after another. In 2013, an IT Band injury sidelined me for nearly three years. I made my marathon comeback at the 2015 Chicago Marathon, but I still have one major running goal - a sub-4 marathon.
