I started running in February 2009 because I wanted to physically and mentally challenge myself — in a way that I had never pushed myself before. When I was younger, I played sports like soccer, lacrosse and field hockey — they were all team sports and required a coach to push us during practices. This time, I wanted to do something on my own where I had to not only mentally push myself but also physically push myself — I wanted to be in complete control to see what I could accomplish. So, I decided to sign up for races and became hooked that year. In October 2010, I completed my first, full marathon, the Nike Women’s Marathon. This year, I will be running the same marathon to see if I could get a better time, especially because I have been “training” more (instead of winging it).
