Just Run.

My whole life I've had the dream of qualifying for and running the Boston Marathon. Now I can finally say that instead of just stalling, waiting for my dreams to achieve themselves, I am going for it. The idea of failure is terrifying, but the idea of cowering away from my potential is so much worse. Follow my journey in the posts below. Running advice, inspiration, and commiseration appreciated!


Mini Motivation

``The real purpose of running is not to win a race, it's to test the limits of the human heart.`` -Bill Bowerman


Who am I?

I'm a writer, teacher, runner, thinker, creator, lover. Welcome to the little corner of my blog where running is my only obsession.
