Mom of two. Regular late to sport runner but I also like to push my limits to see where that takes me. Air Force reservist veteran; only did the initial 6 years. Active duty Army spouse so at the mercy of the military as to where we live. Started running May 2020. 2021 comes and my friend asks if I’d run a marathon with her, of course I would! First ever at Richmond Nov 2021. Now smack in the heavy build for Marine Corps marathon in essentially my hometown. Running has transformed my life. Gives me time to process/untangle my thoughts and get the gratification of improvement. It’s taught me how to work through issues, bad days and injuries. It’s given me an additional community. My son has been watching and picked up cross country and I’m beyond proud when he asks for my advice even though he is already faster than me. I found Picky last year. I was looking for ways to fuel and have been hooked to the oatmeal or bars for my pre-run or Pre-lift fueling. It’s always easy on my stomach and gives me the energy I need to hit my workouts hard.
