I'm a runner and a writer trying to make sense of life through words and movement. Running has inspired me during some of my darkest times, and motivated me to challenge myself more than I though possible. Since I took up running three years ago I've run two marathons and countless shorter distances. I've made some amazing friends. I've upturned my life and never looked back. Heading out on my first run was a daunting moment. Facing that fear has empowered me endlessly.
