I was never an active kid growing up. I was bad at sports, lacked coordination, and the mile run day in PE was my least favorite day. As an adult, I started running initially to lose weight, but then fell in love with the community. Runners are some of the most welcoming, supportive people you’ll meet, and I wanted to be part of that. Now I help support that community by coaching with a Chicago-based training program. When I’m not running, I’m also working part time as a personal trainer and full time as a school-based assistive technology specialist.
