I’m a runner.
I write about running stuff.
27 28 years old. I began running in May of 2010. Most people would say I am not a natural-born runner, including nearly every PE teacher I had as a child. I struggle every day with the psychological aspect of being a runner, but I keep running. I’ve done two 5ks, two 4 miles, one 10k, and two half-marathons.
Also, I am a brain injury survivor. I was in a bad car accident when I was 17 years old and spent 11 days in a coma. With the help of my amazing family and several weeks of therapy, I defied expectations and recovered. I still have some funny quirks left from the accident, but if you met me, you’d never guess.
Oh, I also get to walk an adorable Schnauzer-Poodle mix named Sadie quite often. She belongs to friends who just recently had a baby and don’t have time to walk her. She’s small so I don’t run with her too much- sometimes we’ll run short distances but not much- but she’s just adorable and great company!
