Once Upon A Time...I was allergic to running. Every year in High School, I would hope for a
broken ankle so that I wouldn't have to do the required Presidential Mile. It was awful. I wondered how anyone could ever enjoy this sport.
Then, I grew up a little bit and decided that I'd knock something off of
the bucket list and joined a relay team for the Pittsburgh Marathon in
2011. I had a blast despite my lack
of training and terrible shoes. It was
then that I called on my friend Jenn at Mojo and got the right shoes and joined
the very first C25K program. I was
hooked. Now I have 7 half marathons
under my belt, as well as many other races of various distance.
I am the resident slow poke but I have so much fun bringing
up the rear. I am a testament to the old
"if I can do it, anyone can do it" because with a plethora of health
issues, 3 kids and many other obligations, I still found the love of the run.
