About

This is my minds ramble of my journey to getting healthy..and everything else that I feel like throwing in. In my mind I had always seen myself as athletic, confident, a ” go-getter “…but not until I made the choice to have Gastric Bypass Surgery in October 2010 did I truly start to believe those things. I had started running a year before I had surgery. Running while you are carrying an extra 100lbs…is not easy, and honestly sucked ass. As the weight started to come off I actually ENJOYED running. I set a goal to finish a half marathon. I planned it out and worked the plan…and completed my first half marathon in September of 2011. One of the most honest, best feelings ever. Off Road Trail running had always intrigued me. But with the fear of breaking an ankle as I trained for my half, I didn’t venture too far into the woods…until recently. There’s something so peaceful and renewing about running on a trail…over rocks..through the mud. I have absolutely fell in love ! From the very depths of me…I have become who I’ve always known…

My first 5k 2009... it wasn't pretty .

My first half marathon...almost to the finish line !

First 10k trail race.
