For a majority of my life I struggled with my weight, and being picked on about it really hurt. With diet and exercise I was able to get it under control. Running has been a huge impact in helping me get this under control. Running allows me an escape. It gives me time alone with my thoughts and allows me to reflect on my past and where I’m going. Running races allows me to embrace my competitive nature and encourage others on their journey. I am honored to be a part of the revolution running team this year and the timing couldn’t be better as I take on a Spartan Ultra as well as several marathons this next year. I look forward to what the year holds for me.
