I’ve been an athlete my whole life playing softball and soccer in college but never just “ran.” It wasn’t until February of 2013 that I decided to run the Boston half marathon because a girl at work always talked about it and loved running. Being the competitor I am, I decided that I could do it too! It was the hardest thing I had done. I went through every injury in that first year of running and had no idea what I was doing. But the reason I stuck with it was to prove to myself that I could push through the pain and hardship. I was going through a hard time in my life and to this day I don’t know where I would be or how I would have gotten through it without having running as my outlet. It cleared my head, it calmed me down, it brought me peace and sanity. It taught me to push through the hard times in life and to never give up. And for that I will never stop running. Fast forward a couple years with multiple half and full marathons under my belt and I consider myself and AVID and PASSIONATE runner who co-founded a running business called RELENTLESS RUNNERS where I seek to help and inspire others out there with the same passions. Running has truly changed my life and for that I am forever grateful.
