Running is not something that came naturally to me. I always felt like the unfit, back-of-the-pack runner who looked at other people running effortlessly in complete awe and confusion about how they could run like that. But I am always up for a challenge and pushed myself to learn and improve! I can vividly remember how much I struggled to run my first 3 miles and the sense of achievement when I did it.
My journey with getting fit and my passion for challenging myself began in 2008 when I decided this would be a great way to relieve myself of the boredom and limitations of my 9-5 graduate sales job. I was young, ambitious and full of energy. I wanted to build my confidence, discover something I felt passionate about and push my limits. I signed up for my first race and began getting fit.
