ImageI started running to make the cardio segment of my cross training classes a little less painful. A little running lead to a huge goal of running a half marathon. What should have taken 12-13 weeks of training took 5years to accomplish. Poor training, couple with injuries made that goal almost impossible to reach. Finally in 2012 I ran my first half marathon and never looked back. With several half marathons under my belt I decided to tackle a full marathon and in 2013 with the help of Running Evolution I accomplished what at the time seem like an impossible goal. Training for a full marathon and pushing myself beyond what I could imagine was exhilarating and life changing. Today I can’t imagine my life without running. Running hands down is my anchor, my happy place. As I enter in my third year of running, I can’t wait to see what new adventures this year will bring.<
