Single mom. Runner. Mental Illness Warrior.
I would have never thought of myself as a runner when I was younger. I used to think “what the hell are those people doing?” (Especially those that ran in the winter!)
I never, ever, imagined I would be diagnosed with a mental illness before the age of 40.
Being a single mom: Well, it has made me a better person, despite all of the struggles associated with doing it on your own.
After becoming injured in the spring of 2014 I needed a way to vent about all of the things going on in my life that I had no control over. I couldn’t get a clear head through running while I waited for a diagnosis and treatment (which ended up being surgery).
It was suggested by a friend of mine that I start a blog. Sharing my story and struggles could create a new community for me. Maybe there were others out there going through something similar.
Little did I know it would open up a whole new circle of friends and allow me to meet some amazing people.
This blog is where I go to share my struggles, successes and frustrations and not feel like I am whining (well, okay, sometimes I still feel like I am whining, lol). I also love sharing opinions about what works (and doesn’t work) for me when it comes to running.
Ready to come along? I hope you stick around for a bit. This is one wild ride.
