I have been a runner pretty much my entire life from running around chasing friends as a child then track and cross country in Junior High and Freshman year in High School. Big accomplishment was placing 77th in Varsity Girls Cross County in the State of Kansas as a Freshman. I didn't really run too much from 15 to 21 but picked back up the habit of running again after college. I love to participate in 5k, 10K, 15K, and half marathons. I completed my first half marathon in Feb 2016. I honestly never thought about running a half marathon and when a running buddy asked me to participate with her in one I went with the flow. I loved following the RunDisney Jeff Galloway training program and find that this is a very easy program to follow with a crazy schedule. Running is a great outlet for stress and I like to think it's my vent/therapy sessions with my girls. I can honestly say I was hoping as an adult Running would help with my midsection but at 21 I was at my lowest weight of my life and now at 27 at my heaviest.
