Misadventures with wine, weights, and running shoes.

Happy Runiversary to Me!

Tuesday, December 2, 2014
It is hard to believe that it has been two years already. Two years since I stepped onto a middle school track with a bunch of unfamiliar faces and took a step into the unknown and a bold leap out of my comfort zone.

And, let’s not forget that it was ONLY going to be a 5k. It is amazing how things change.


Now, two years, six half marathons, a full marathon, and a failed 50k later, I wake up well before dawn to meet friends for a short run and drag myself into the gym at ungodly hours to cross train. I see running in the rain as an opportunity to adapt to changes and grueling long runs as the chance to build character and mental fortitude. I have found that struggle is merely a part of the journey, that setbacks are just that – not a finale – and that the long hours of training with the same people over the course of months creates lasting bonds; an extended family.

Yes, running has changed my life. It has changed my perspective. It has changed my way of living and naturally, it has changed my health. Love, Theresa.
