Where it all began.
I guess this is where I introduce myself a little bit. I’m 21, a student, a worker, and a born again runner (PRAISE, ASICS). I grew up in Norther Northern California. (Pot County, USA? Yep, that’s my sweet little home). I moved a little further east in 2013 to a conservative, 1950’s town and let me just say I can’t to be somewhere with weirdness.
I’ve had weight problems for as long as I can remember. In 2008, I was at my heaviest at 240 lbs. In 2013, I found myself at 153 lbs. and in the throws of an eating disorder.
It’s been hard, some of it hasn’t been healthy, and it’s a constant struggle.
I finally decided it was time to fulfill a dream of mineI developed when I started losing weight.
Run. A. Marathon.
And I’m doing it! The San Francisco Marathon on July 27, 2o14 will surely be my bitch and I am full of all of the excitement.
In the end, I’m here because of me. I’m here to talk about me. I’m here to help myself. And I’m here so I can finally live the life I’ve only seen behind closed eyes.
