I've been running consistently for a few weeks now and my achilles is feeling almost normal. To clarify, my current definition of consistent running is slow and steady. Once my achilles stopped hurting 24/7 and I was able to walk without pain I did a few 1 mile runs. In mid December I began with… Continue reading Never Quit
2018 is off to a great start! I've been selected for the Altra Red Team, previously known as the Altra Ambassador program. Year 3 with Altra is going to be amazing!

In the past I've written about setting goals rather than resolutions because I think setting a properly structured goal is much more effective than just resolving to do something, or not do something. Though I don't think goals, or resolutions if you prefer that term, need to be set on January 1st the 1st of… Continue reading New Year, New Goals

No one ever tells you that before you can live out your dream you have to survive… Continue reading Living out your dream is never a dream

Running has been my best friend, my worst enemy, and my main source of failure. As a long time female athlete I’ve experienced low points in my sport coupled with the crippling fear that I will never be “good enough,” and this fear that I would never be good enough wasn’t just isolated to my… Continue reading Success erases failure
